For high schoolers plotting their future careers, these are confusing times. On the one hand, there's cause for optimism: The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the US economy will add 15.6 million jobs in the decade between 2006 and 2016. But those jobs won't be evenly split across regions or industries. New entrants into the labor force will be forced to compete with workers overseas for the best jobs. One strategy, the modern college freshman can do to navigate this uneven terrain, is to plan for a degree in an unusual field. The newest edition of They Teach That In College!? published by College & Career Press, offers a few fresh insights. Among the most eye-catching include: 1. sustainable business, 2. computer and digital forensics, 3. comic book art, 4. nanoscience/nanotechnology, and 5. strategic intelligence.
