At the end of 2020, more than 42 million people in the United States rented apartments and homes. With so many people renting from management companies, the need for property managers is expected to remain steady over the next ten years, meaning there are many opportunities for someone looking to break into the field. If you’re a people person with strong communication and management skills, becoming a property manager could be the perfect career for you. Here’s what you need to know about the job.

For every job out there, there are a certain set of needed skills unique to that particular position. However, there are also desirable skills needed for every job, regardless of what your career goals are. These are known as “soft skills”, and Penn Foster can help you sharpen them so you can go into the workforce feeling confident.

If you’re passionate about helping animals, then you’ve probably considered a career in the veterinary field. With that in mind, there’s no better time than now to take the next steps toward the career you want! As more people become pet owners, the need for passionate, skilled veterinary technicians is expected to grow 16% over the next decade, adding over 18,000 new job opportunities. In order to become a veterinary technician, you may need further education and training to help you prepare for the job. But if you don’t have time to attend an in-person school to earn your degree, what options do you have? That’s where Penn Foster’s AVMA-accredited Veterinary Technician Associate Degree can help! Here’s how the self-paced, online degree is designed to help you succeed!

Success isn’t something that just falls into our laps. It takes hard work and planning. Setting goals is a great way to contribute to that plan, giving you direction, a clear point to focus on, and motivation. This can be particularly important when working towards a degree, especially if you have other commitments like a career and family.
