Alabama Schools Deserve a Second Look for Your Degree

Alabama is expecting a slow recovery from the recent recession that has plagued the entire nation. However, the BBVA Compass banking group forecasts that foreign demand for high tech Alabama equipment and stable auto sales could help the state's economic recovery; the University of Alabama Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) concurs and adds health care services to industries that may also contribute.

Alabama Job Market and Career Outlook

According to the Milken Institute's 2010 Best-Performing Cities, the Huntsville metropolitan area ranks third in the nation for economic growth through job creation and wage and technology growth. Quicker recovery in Huntsville could also help recovery in other regions of Alabama. Forbes.com ranked Huntsville at #8 in 2010 for best places for business and careers, with Mobile and Montgomery coming in 5th and 8th respectively for projected job growth.

Based on data from the Department of Industrial Relations, WKRG News in Mobile reports the highest paid careers in Alabama are personal financial advisors, medical and health services professionals, aerospace and computer software engineers, and postsecondary teachers.
