Where the jobs are

| No Comments


The CEC News blog has been reaching out to our graduating seniors in these last several posts, and with good reason. Making that first big transtion from college to career is a big one and is not always easy to navigate. But it can be done - and has been - many, many times.

Continuing with that theme, and for other young alums and career ponderers out there, we point you in the direction of this recent story from the Boston Globe Magazine about the local job market, specifically concerning four sectors of promise and growth: health care, finance and insurance, customer service, and computers and information technology.

"Finding a new job isn't easy in the best of times, but there are ways to increase the odds in your favor. Whether you're entering the workforce for the first time, trying to come back from a layoff, or just ready to make a change, be smart and start with a look at where the jobs of tomorrow will be. For those with the right credentials, these 20 picks in four relatively strong Massachusetts industries -- health care, finance, high tech, and, yes, service -- will have hired more than 100,000 new workers by the end of this decade, according to projections by the state's labor department."

Check out the full piece on And remember, you can always avail yourself of the Career Education Center resources and services, both elsewhere on our website and in-person - we're here for you all summer long!
