Degree Options and Schools in California

Industry Outlook in the Golden State
California is facing a growing deficit, political gridlock, and a shrinking economy; however, in light of dwindling industries, there remain some employment brightspots in the Golden State. Between the third sector of 2009 and third quarter of 2010, professions within education, health care, and social sciences should see an improving job market.

California Job Opportunities
Due to the anticipated growth of private education providers, California estimates that jobs for pre-school through secondary level teachers should increase by 7,000 jobs. Job markets for registered nurses (RNs) are growing, with an estimated 9,000 jobs added. An RN degree provides strong potential for profitable job opportunities. Openings in social work, counseling and other social service sectors are expected to increase by 4,900 jobs.
