Career education : Feed your need to succeed

These days, the job market is changing so quickly that keeping up with the training you need to get the career you want -- or get ahead in the one you have -- can seem daunting. A 2012 study from the Pew Research Center found that only about half of workers aged 18 to 49 believe that they have the education they need to get ahead in their current career. Of those aged 18 to 34 and not working, only 27 percent believed they had the education necessary to get the kind of job they want. This is where career education comes in.
