Benefits of a Career-Targeted Education
There are a million job seekers out there just like you – sharp, driven and hardworking. Many of them, however, are missing one essential item on their resume: a career-targeted education.
Due to the demanding job market employers are currently seeking candidates who have demonstrated a passion for their profession by earning degrees focused on their future career.
While some students earn degrees in broad subjects like Communications or History, employers are more interested in graduates from programs that teach skills that directly apply to the profession. The key is to be as specific as possible with your degree and field of interest.
This is especially true if you’re interested in a career in law enforcement. Applicants with criminal justice or forensic science degrees can be viewed as having more direct field experience than their counterparts with more general degrees.
