Kiplinger's 10 Best College Majors for Lucrative Careers

Have you seen this list from Kiplinger?  Still trying to decide on your next career move?

The careers on this list are evaluated based on:

  • salaries (median salaries below)
  • training and education (look closely at education and training)
  • projected increase in the number of jobs available
1. Pharmacist and Pharmacology ($105K)
2. Nursing ($48K)
3. Transportation Science and Technology ($68K)
4. Treatment Therapy Professions ($62K)
5. Chemical Engineering ($86K)
6. Electrical Engineering ($86K)
7. Medical Technologies ($58K)
8. Construction Services ($65K)
9. Management Information Systems ( $71K)
10. Medical Assisting Services ($54K)

Of course I always caution that just because the numbers ($$$$) look good to you doesn't mean it is the career for you.  This list is a good place to start your research.

I'm not saying you can't return to your small midwestern hometown (or any midwestern hometown), to your impoverished family and jobless friends, and live like a manchild. You'll probably have some fun. But you'll be poor. More info at this web site.

To meet the goals of modern society and higher education as a foundation of it, all universities use short written materials as its major part. In case a student gets a complicated one topic with lots of questions and answers to be indicated, he can always find free example of research proposal at Goodexamplepapers website and get substantial help within a day, a week or a period of time needed to meet all requirements of current assignment.
