Before you decide on a post-secondary path, you should investigate potential career options. Things to consider are your interest in a specific career, your aptitude (possessing the necessary skills ) for that career and the job market in the future. For instance, the U.S. Department of Labor predicts that only 20% of the careers in the first quarter of the 21st century will require a four year college degree and that 65% of potential careers will require post secondary education of two years or less.
