It’s not unusual to use a recession to make a major career change. While others are floundering, you can be advancing your career by going to school or pursing an entirely new path. These days, the healthcare industry is very popular — and with good reason!

Healthcare is one of the only industries that has added jobs in the last two months. Healthcare workers are also unable to be outsourced and will always be in demand as long as people are catching colds, breaking bones, and having babies.

Are You Ready for a Career in Health Care?
