San Antonio physical therapist jobs in the spotlight

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

A new Careerbuilder looks at jobs that are a great opportunity for youth, including San Antonio physical therapist jobs.

CareerBuilder research shows that nearly 1 in 4 high school students pick their career based on something they saw on TV or in a movie, and that 33 percent of full-time workers regret the college major they chose. As college debt rises, the skills gap widens and a significant number of workers fall prone to unemployment or underemployment, it is important to start educating students early about their options.

 

CareerBuilder is releasing a series of studies that provide surprising insights into labor market and hiring trends. Today’s release focuses on top occupations for younger workers based on jobs that are growing quickly, pay a good wage and have a solid concentration of workers ages 19 to 24.
