US News and World Report recently named Audiology as one of the USA’s top careers!
Every year, UN News and World Report publishes a list of careers with the best outlook for the current year and beyond as well as the highest rate of job satisfaction. In this recessionary economy, it must have been especially difficult to generate the list.
Audiology makes the grade mainly for the following reasons:
1) Careers that involve one-on-one assistance often result in the highest level of satisfaction.
2) The population of individuals in need of audiological service is expected to grow.
3) The training required is relatively low in comparison to the amount of money that can be made.
Audiologists are now required to get an Au.D. degree, whereas in the past only a Master’s was required. But, as the requirement has risen, so has pay.
