Career changes to make in a shaky economy

On average, a job in this country lasts only three-and-a-half years. You might shift roles in your profession as you advance into management positions. Or you may leap into a new career entirely, training in mid-life for a career that reflects your true passions. In turbulent economic times, you may head back to college to prepare for a radically different, better-paying profession.

Seven in 10 Americans admit that they’d change jobs tomorrow if only they could. Online college degree and career training programs offer unparalleled scheduling flexibility, allowing you to shift lanes without slowing down. Some employers will even reimburse your tuition if you’re training for management. Here are five growing fields that make for easy transitions along with the training necessary to make your move:

  • Accountant: The United States will add 226,000 openings for accountants and auditors over the next decade.
  • Nursing Administrator: Advanced practice nursing specialties require completion of a master’s degree in nursing (MSN) or business administration.
  • Massage Therapist: Employment of massage therapists is projected to increase 20 percent through 2016.
  • Management Analyst: These jobs are to grow by a hefty 22 percent over the 2006-2016 decade. Qualify by obtaining a master’s degree in business administration.
  • Technical Writer: Enroll in a technical writing training program to learn the writing fundamentals in creating white papers, online copy, training manuals, and marketing publications.
