A few weeks ago the Wall Street Journal had an article about the Best and Worst jobs...You can read about it here
But here are the top ten jobs to have right now:
5. Software Engineer
6. Computer Systems Analyst
9. Industrial Designer
I found it interesting that the top three jobs are things you major in at HPU in our department. So today I showed my students this article. I of course talked to them too about how really most of these jobs are high paying jobs (just not in education). They found that quite amusing and interesting too and I think it might have sparked some interest in some. Either way, I guess that means if I lose my job in teaching, I could probably find a great, high paying job somewhere at a company and help solve real world problems.
I also showed my class the following IBM Commercial that I happen to see on TV the other night while watching the Duke vs WFU game (down with the Blue Devils!!!)
Thanks for a great commercial IBM!
