Connecticut Degrees: Help Your Career Grow with the Economy

Connecticut is beginning to see some sectors of its economy rebound after the recent downturn. The state has added about 9,300 new jobs in the hospitality and leisure services industry since the beginning of 2010, as well as about 1,100 new positions filled in educational services this year. The health care job market has also been active, with about 4,300 new jobs being created.

Connecticut Careers on the Move

The state projects job growth in many professions through 2018, but some Connecticut careers may expand rapidly as the state and national economy improves. Connecticut estimates that the job market should be very good for qualified applicants in the following occupations:

  • Registered Nurse
  • Computer Software Engineer
  • Elementary School Teacher
  • Personal Finance Adviser

The registered nursing career field is expected to have as many as 5,300 new positions to fill through 2018, and there may be up to 2,100 computer software engineers needed during the same period.

Connecticut Schools can Help You Compete

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that almost 35 percent of Connecticut's residents have a Bachelor's degree and over 15 percent have continued their education to an advanced degree level. Even in an unpredictable economic environment there may be competition for jobs; earning a college degree can help you compete on equal terms, if not make your resume stand out from the stack.

Many Connecticut schools offer online degree programs for students with jobs and families. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the 2009 mean annual salary for a computer software engineer in Connecticut was about $94,970, and a personal financial adviser earned about $125,210. Connecticut schools can help get you started on the path to a rewarding new career.
