The cover to the 2012-2013 Pennsylvania Career Guide.

Are you trying to choose a career?  Unsure of how to best invest in your education to get a high-paying job later?  Or, like many of us, are you just trying to figure out the answer to the question “what do you want to be when you grow up?”

If your answer to any of these questions was yes, then you’re in luck.  The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry publishes an annual report called the Pennsylvania Career Guide. This report provides an easy-to-understand look at which careers are hot in the Keystone State.  This year’s report highlights jobs in Natural Gas but shows strong growth in manufacturing, transportation, health services, and technology.  You can view the 2012-2013 Pennsylvania Career Guide here.
