Education & Academia


Welcome to the Education & Academia Career Community!

If you enjoy the process of learning and disseminating information, teaching others new things, or just helping others learn and develop new skills, or if you enjoy putting information together in a way that clarifies its complexity, this is the Career Community for you! According to the Vault Career Guide to Education, “nearly one in four Americans is an enrolled student at any given time. As a result of this great demand for talented teachers, education is the United States’ second largest industry, and the different career tracks within education are as varied as the national population of its students. People who become educators often have the desire to make a difference in the lives of others by helping students grasp a challenging concept or capturing their imagination and curiosity. Successful teachers are dedicated to achieving this goal and believe in the power of education to transform students’ lives.” If this mission speaks to you, join this Career Community.
