Health & Human Services / Education
Careers in the healthcare industry are rewarding, both personally and professionally. Unlike some other industries, improvements in technology and declines in the economy do not have much of an effect on demand for healthcare professionals — people continue to need healthcare and human services. Many people look to these types of careers, like nursing or emergency medical technician, for long-term job stability. The intrinsic rewards that come from caring for and helping people in need are valued by people at all levels of healthcare.
