Facing the toughest job market in decades, young Americans struggle to find work anyway they can. It turns out, even in this tough economy, people with education or training beyond high school not only make more money, but they also are more likely to find work. However, young adults frequently tell us that they struggle to find out what subject to study or what kind of training to pursue. Thats why were teaming up with the American School Counselor Association this week to release the Skills that Work Toolkit.
The toolkit is a website that provides information about the job market in all 50 states to help young people make informed decisions about their career path. For example, it lists the fastest growing jobs that require some education or training after high school.
