9 in 10 Americans consider the economy to be extremely important when it comes to their voting decision this year.
Provo, UT (PRWEB) March 15, 2012
A recent Gallup Poll showed that 9 in 10 Americans consider the economy to be extremely important when it comes to their voting decision this year. My Colleges and Careers, as a promoter of education and career success, understands the concern that many have when it comes to having a stable economy. Website tools on the My Colleges and Careers homepage can allow individuals to be informed about the economic implications of receiving an education and help them find online colleges that will give them a jump start to their career during the current recession.
As a part of their analysis, the Gallup Poll looked at data for the three main political groups in the US—Democratic, Independent, Republican. All three parties put the economy as their top concern for the 2012 presidential election. Unemployment fell into second place for Democrats and 3rd place for Independents and Republicans. Much of the debate surrounding the elections this year will be related to economic concerns. Many of those individuals who will vote in the presidential election are college-aged young adults, the group that has been hit the hardest by unemployment for the past several years. One way that young adults can combat with the difficult economy is by earning a college degree. My Colleges and Careers has website features that will guide education-seekers to colleges and online degrees that will best allow them success in their careers, despite challenges.
The “Find School Now” search box is the main focus of the My Colleges and Careers homepage. It links website users to online schools and specific online courses. Additionally, the website offers thousands of pages giving career data, salary statistics, and steps for how to break into the field. A few other tools, such as infographics and an education blog authored by industry experts, also assist in this effort. All of this serves as a guide to help individuals complete their education and prepare to enter the workforce. As the Gallup poll shows, the economy and unemployment are hot-button issues this year. This is particularly true for those who are college age. The best way to become informed and prepare for the future is to seek out as much information and learning as possible. My Colleges and Careers is committed to helping the public become educated and prepare for the future.
