Description:

In difficult economic times, many people begin to consider switching careers. One way to find out about new career pathways in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, computing, or healthcare is to listen to a few of these podcasts provided by the Sloan Career Cornerstone Center (SCCC). The SCCC is a non-profit resource sponsored by organizations including the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and Texas Instruments, and their site functions as way for interested parties to explore over 185 degree fields. On the site, visitors can listen to the most recent podcast, or move through the additional 45 podcasts that are currently archived. Visitors can also read summaries of each career category, which include links to a "Day in the Life", a brief overview of typical day in that career. Visitors will also find links to professional organizations and information about salary ranges and employment options.
