A study from the Indiana Business Research Center suggests education and health care majors fared the best for employment through the recession. IBRC Economic Analysis Director Tim Slaper co-authored the study.
Slaper said health care graduates with a certificate, bachelor’s or master’s degree were “pretty much equally resilient” when it came to employment during the weak economy. He discussed the findings with Business of Health Reporter Barb Lewis during an appearance on Inside Indiana Business Television.
Slaper said a vast majority of the career fields that fared the best were nursing related. He said architecture and engineering graduates had a tough time.
However, Slaper also said engineering graduates had better chances of finding another job.
