It’s time for a career in health care!
Mar. 21, 2016
Did you know that in 1912, the average life expectancy was 53 years old? Today, using the most recent data available, it hovers in the neighborhood of 78 years. With the U.S. population living longer, 2015 being the year of the digital fitness tracker and more health care reforms on the horizon, thereâs been no better time to explore a career in health care. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects that health care support occupations are projected to increase 28.1 percent from 2012 to 2022, the fastest growth of any major occupational group. Much like the health care practitioners group, according to the BLS, more than half of job openings leading to a career in health care support occupations are expected to be a result of new jobs rather than of openings resulting from replacement needs. When we look at the growing need our society will demand from these positions, it begs the question: If not you, who will answer the call? Take a look at our award-winning campaign that drives this point home from the eyes of patients and providers alike.
