An interesting article appeared in Forbes the other day regarding my profession.  Sonographers are pretty busy, and pretty well paid.  I have known this fact for over thirty years.  Considering the amount of work, and responsibilities Sonographers are subjected to it is not surprising to know that most Sonographers I know are happy.  Tired but happy!

A recent report by the McKinsey Global Institute found that while low-skill jobs are on the decline, by 2020 employers around the globe will need an estimated 45 million more mid-level workers who have a high school education and vocational training. Meanwhile, a highly cited study by the Harvard Graduate School of Education last year concluded that in the U.S. “we place far too much emphasis on a single pathway to success: attending and graduating from a four-year college.” According to the report, 30% of the 47 million new jobs expected to be created in the U.S. by 2018 will only require an associate’s degree or a certificate.

Here is the link.  Thanks Forbes
