Staten Island, NY (Vocus) September 30, 2010
Autumn is upon us, which means the leaves are falling, the temperature is cooling, and a brand new crop of television series are premiering on prime time. The shows strive to entertain, but they also offer insight into some of today’s hottest careers, say editors at The CollegeBound Network (CBN) a leading postsecondary education portal that provides engaging and educational resources from more than 1,000 education institutions offering thousands of degree and certificate programs.
“Television can be a great way to glimpse the inner workings of a variety of careers,” says Gina LaGuardia, VP of Content Development at The CollegeBound Network. “At The CollegeBound Network, students can find a wealth of resources regarding in-demand careers and how to get them.”
Here are a few of the brand new TV series showcasing cutting-edge careers:
