“Pairing our Hot Degrees for Veteranswith Hot Jobs for Veterans can help map out a pathway to civilian success.” Sean Collins, VP Victory Media, 9-year Navy Veteran
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) April 16, 2015
G.I. Jobs® released today its 2015 Hot Degrees for VeteransTM (http://www.gijobs.com/top-10-hot-degrees-veterans-2015/). Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and the list, surveyed hiring managers from over 200 Military Friendly® Employers (http://militaryfriendly.com/military-friendly-employers/) to identify post-secondary training and education programs veterans need to work in today’s hottest job fields.
“Before investing their hard-earned benefits in going back to school, it makes sense for veterans to look at what employers are looking for,” said Sean Collins, Vice President at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. “Pairing our Hot Degrees for VeteransTM with the Hot Jobs for VeteransTM can help veterans map out a pathway to civilian success.”
Collins adds, “Getting the right training or education for in-demand jobs doesn’t necessarily require a traditional four-year degree.”
The 2015 Hot Degrees for VeteransTM include “fast track” options—two-year degrees, certificates or licensing programs—in the fields of Information Technology and Healthcare, as well as Skilled Trades and Transportation. Veterans interested in pursuing a traditional bachelor degree will find opportunities in Business Administration/Finance, Information Technology, Operations & Logistics, Engineering, Construction Management and HealthCare.
“The Hot Degrees list looks beyond education as a means to an end and puts career outcomes in leading job fields first,” said Collins.
