G.I. Jobs has released their annual Hot Jobs report for 2015 and Chattahoochee Technical College offers nearly one dozen of the programs listed. Those programs range from certifications in the healthcare industry to Commercial Truck Driving and Information Technology.
“You don’t need a bachelor’s degree to get into a career in IT. While a bachelor’s degree is never a bad idea, many experts say earning an associate degree and/or the right certification can be just as effective – especially when combined with military training and experience,” the article says.
According to the Bureau of Labor, web developers with an associate degree, for example, see a median salary of $62,000 a year.
If working with your hands is what you prefer, consider a career as a welder, electrician, or HVAC specialist.
“Construction is back with a vengeance, and many of this year’s Military Friendly Employers® tell us they are having a hard time recruiting skilled tradesmen and women,” the article says. “If you learned a trade in the military as a welder, electrician or plumber, for example, you should have no problem finding a good job.”
If you’re serious about securing a job, become certified or receive a diploma in a program such as Welding and Joining Technology or Electrical Systems Technology at CTC. Not only will you be ahead of the curve in the classroom, but the certification will give you an edge on those competing for jobs who do not have a state-recognized skillset
