The tough economic times have devastated many industries crippling employment opportunities. But, amidst this career malaise, professional and business related services are weathering the economic storm with projections of job growth, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
In fact, from March to April of this year 39,000 jobs were added to the business and professional services industry. Hoping to score one of those business jobs, people are turning to online business degree programs to balance that pursuit with their lives.
