Answer: A good place to start would be the Occupational Outlook Handbook 2010-11 edition. This is published by the Department of Labor. You can find it here: http://www.bls.gov/oco/
Changing careers by getting your Masters Degree
Question: Hi I would like some help on where to go for career enhancement. Every search I have done online takes me to sites of people just wanting to do interest inventories or a site wanting to promote their own business/school. I am a teacher. I went back later in life to get my degree currently 43. I have been teaching for 4 years. In that time I taught 4th grade, a GED teacher , and for the last for 2 1/2 years alternative middle school I enjoy my job but the company is struggling and I am maxing out in pay at 40k. I have to start on my masters later this year and I don't know if I want to invest my heart in a career field that will leave me struggling financially. I live in Massachusetts where rent and home prices are ridiculous plus still paying off student loans from my Bachelors. I also want to adopt. I enjoy what I I do but can't get ahead. How can I take what I have learned and build upon it for a job that will allow me one day to have a home/family of my own without being completely poor. I need to find someone who will help me decide on a masters program to build.
