Job-Market Data Inform Carroll Co. Area Technology Center Student Career Plans

For many years, schools have urged all students to earn bachelor's degrees because, overall, they carry higher lifetime earnings. But economic changes—and the cost of college—have made that picture more complex.

Coupled with projections about which jobs will be in demand in the coming years, that kind of information is crucial for students as they imagine their futures.
