U.S. News and World Report Careers to Count On


The February 18 issue of U.S. News and World Report features the magazine's Career Guide 2002 and has some positive statistics with regard to career and technical education. Among what are described as "eight of the nation's most secure career tracks" are some specifically requiring training through career and technical education programs.

Citing U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projections for health technologists, U.S. News and World Report says that there will be a need over the next decade for 39,000 more radiographers to take X-rays, CT scans and MRIs, as well as an increasing demand for technicians to perform ultrasound, electrocardiograms and nuclear medicine procedures, and to analyze slide specimens.

Approximately 80 percent of all finished products in the U.S. are transported by truck at some point, the publication found, and a 25 percent growth in our nation's fleet of trucks is needed in the next decade to keep up with the demand. While the better drivers will be able to command higher salaries, and new drivers should be able to find jobs, the cabs of trucks now are equipped with high-tech devices such as laptop computers and global positioning systems that require some training in their use.
