well the say that the healthcare field is a promising career to go for, but think about just how many other confused 18 year olds are hearing the same
thing, and taking the same advice, how many years have they've been saying it. so, well, a good portion of the 18 years, take that advice, as they
have done in prior years... it's quite possible that by the time you graduate, the market might be so full of eligible candidates already, the jobs
might not cover them all. when the recession hit in the late 70's early eighties, many of the employment commissions in the northern states were
telling the unemployed to go to tx, there were jobs in tx!! only some got the word too late, by the time they got there, reagan had come into office
again, the oil was flowing more freely from the middle east and they were capping all the wells, and the jobs dried up.
the point i think I am trying to make is that unless you have a crystal ball and can foresee into the future, 2, 4 or 6 years down the line, the world
might be very different before you are trained for whatever you chose. there are no guarentees. and that world is changing oh so much faster now.
so, there is no clear answer. best advice is to decide what you are good at, what you enjoy doing, look where everyone else is going, and maybe head
in an opposite direction? and sit back and think a few moments at just how the internet, robotics, and other technology has changed the world, and
how it will continue to change it. technology is replacing alot of jobs, but it is also opening up new opportunities also. you need to try to see
the trends that are forming in the world and kind of predict where they will be in the future.
