Job Training and Career Consulting — Poised to Grow and Ready to Hire

With economic uncertainty now a familiar reality to professionals, seeking a job with security and growth potential is a necessity. Interestingly enough, that security may come from helping others find their dream job. Among these sought-after opportunities are positions in the field of Job Training and Career Consulting, recently slated as one of the top six industries of 2011 by Inc. magazine.

The magazine explained that with boosts from government funding and the surging emphasis on specific skill training, this industry is expected to have revenue growth of more than three percent in the next year. This results in thousands of dollars more in income each year for those holding these positions.

Professionals in the job training and career consulting field can expect to spend their time guiding others on how to most effectively apply their specific skills, interests and qualifications toward long-term success.
