You have your four-year degree, but you’re constantly being told that it’s going to be tough for you to land a job in this economy. Maybe you are just now contemplating going to college and you don’t want to make the wrong degree choice. Experts have pointed out the five career fields requiring a bachelor’s degree that have the greatest number of openings – and surprisingly, a job in each of these fields can be as energy-efficient as you wish to make it.
1) Three of the top five career fields with the most openings all are related to education: elementary, middle school and high school teachers. A total of more than 117,800 jobs are available in the teaching field, with median wages falling between $33,840 and $54,250, according to Careerinfonet.org. These jobs can be treated as green energy jobs as more schools turn to solar power devices to power their buildings and as teachers begin to shape their lessons to teach kids how becoming energy-efficient can help save Mother Earth.
2) Accountants and auditors make up a career field that also has the second-highest number of openings (45,210 openings). This field can be quite lucrative, featuring a median wage of more than $54,250 a year. In addition, green auditing and accounting is becoming highly popular as accountants begin to consider the environmental costs of a company’s operation and analyze how the company has taken part in energy conservation through sustainability efforts.
3) The third field with the highest number of openings for bachelor’s degree students include management analysis (27,430 openings). This field also features a median wage that tops $54,250 a year. Management analysts have the responsibility of boosting the efficiency of an organization, which includes providing advice on how to decrease energy costs to make the company more profitable.
