One of the biggest frustrations college graduates have as they enter the workforce is that the education they received (and paid for) doesn't translate into a viable career right from the start.
That's because not every industry has the desire - or capacity - to hire fresh talent, and those who do only offer entry level positions that don't really reflect the skills the graduate received during his or her schooling. Additionally, because of the cost of a traditional 4-year degree (coupling tuition with the years spent not making a viable income), many college graduates simply can't afford to take these entry-level positions. At the same time, most of these “entry level” jobs require years of prior work experience, something most new college graduates do not have.
It's no wonder, then, that more and more college-ready young adults - and people looking to make a career change - are turning to vocational training courses.
Some of these training programs prepare students for a career in allied health. The job outlook within the allied health industry is bright, because the need for healthcare never wanes.
