US College Rankings:

The US News college ranking methodology has changed many times, and is not made available to public scrutiny. Another guide, best known for their 'Forbes 400' list of the richest people in America, the Forbes rankings have been getting a lot of attention for their list of 'America's Best Colleges.' New college rankings aim to reflect a greater emphasis on student satisfaction, as well as recognizing academic achievement. For critics of the U.S. News & World Report college rankings, the new Forbes College Ratings seem to be more balanced, and include high rankings for many smaller colleges. Peterson's Guide is a comprehensive guide to US colleges, designed for students trying to choose between competing colleges and universities.

Although the cost of tuition has risen for most 4-year colleges and universities, community colleges and trade schools remain an affordable option for those looking to earn an associates degree. The average community college student graduates with only a few thousand dollars in debt, compared to bachelors degree graduates. This means that associates degree recipients are likely to see a return on their investment sooner than those with a bachelors degree. If you're planning on transferring to a four-year program, an associates degree program can be a good idea. You can save money for the first two years of your education by studying at a local community college, but ultimately receive your bachelors degree from a four-year university.

Technical Degree Programs

While some fields insist that you have a four-year degree just to get a job interview, other high-paying careers like computer programming, health care, or small business administration, may be entered with an associates degree. An associates degree is a two-year program that either results in an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree. Some careers that require an associates degree include becoming a dental assistant, occupational or physical therapy assistant, or licensed practical nurse (LPN). The greatest downside to an associates degrees in the job market is only that you will be competing with individuals holding bachelors degrees. Therefore, make sure you're comfortable in the niche you've chosen.

Business

Students will impress future bosses more with an impressive portfolio than with an advanced degree, so practice your skills as a consultant for local companies. Candidates with prior industry experience are preferred by interviewers, but an applicant's past experience must be relevant to the particular job vacancy that the company needs to fill. Your resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on numeric results and personal achievements. Companies frequently publish rankings, offer various awards and incentives, and conduct monthly reviews of employee performance. Seek out a mentor with maturity and the connections to help you find the most direct path to advancement in your industry.

Personal connections that you make at work can outweigh job performance in determining who gets promoted. The main challenge in getting your degree is to choose a career that you will enjoy, and can pursue for many years. The job vacancies for website designers are still increasing, as retail firms move a greater percentage of their business online. You can locate your state government job bank to get assistance in many areas, like writing a resume, conducting a thorough job search, or researching company data to prepare for a job interview. Finally, as the healthcare industry expands its use of electronic medical records, protecting patients' personal data becomes a priority.

Nursing:

There is indeed a shortage of nurses, but please be aware that the education required is very challenging. Community colleges offer an Associate of Science degree in Nursing, and some diploma programs also award certificates in practical nursing. Nurse training can take a long time to complete, based on your ability to learn, and whether you are able to attend nursing school full-time. University nursing degrees, such as the Bachelor of Science in Nursing, reward graduates with advanced education, additional applied training, and competitive starting salaries.

Business & Medical Job Listings

Most business jobs which pay high starting salaries require an associates degree at a minimum, and keep in mind that hiring in technical fields is based more on ability than which school you graduated from. Candidates with prior business experience in a related industry are preferred by interviewers, so you resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on hard results and personal achievement. The business vacancies listed below are updated hourly, so you may wish to save this page for future reference.

In the medical field, there are many fast-growing areas, including medical assisting, imaging, dental, and nursing, just to name a few. Becoming a certified nursing assistant (CNA), for example, may lead to a good salary. Most CNA programs can be completed within a few months, allowing you to start working. The next step in a nursing career is to become a licensed practical nurse (LPN), or licensed vocational nurse (LVN). These are year-long programs, in which you'll work under an RN distributing meds, treating wounds, and providing basic patient care. Browse the following medical areas below.
