Careers of the Month: February 2009 Edition

Like working with people and finding a way to help them? Consider these great job options!

Elementary or Secondary School Teacher: Students interesting in a teaching career in Wisconsin must be certified by the state, which typically involves completing an approved Education major or minor, passing qualifying exams, and more. Some of our HUD and PSYCH students are also completing the Education program, but if you are not, there may be ways to pursue the necessary educational and testing requirements after you complete your bachelor’s degree in another field (e.g., see Milwaukee Fellows Program post). You can find out more about teaching careers at: http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos069.htm

Physical Therapist: A graduate degree is required to become a physical therapist, and a solid foundation in the sciences as an undergraduate is important. This rewarding career has a great employment outlook and could be a wonderful match for someone who enjoys helping others. See: http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos080.htm
