Career Survey

The SkillsUSA survey is scheduled to be online later this week.

A recent survey of high school and college students asked them what occupation they believe could have the greatest impact on changing the world. The top answer: teachers.

Engineers were ranked second, according to the survey, followed by the presidency of the United States.

SkillsUSA, a Leesburg, Va.-based nonprofit group that works with high schools and postsecondary institutions to help students develop workplace skills, conducted the survey. About two-thirds of the 3,851 respondents were high school students.
