Education Research

Education is Power!

As you research the career(s) you are interested, you will notice that most occupations require more than a high school diploma, when it comes to education.  Additionally, as you can see in the graph below, there is a strong relationship between amount of education, frequency of unemployment, and wages earned.  Once you obtain the education needed to launch your career, keep on learning!  Lifelong learning will not only enrich your life, it will keep you current in your field and therefore make you more employable.
