Another in my ongoing series of occasional posts about my wife and careers.
She says some kind of nutrition counseling or something would be up her alley, and I agree.* But of course one wonders whether something is a “growth industry” or not. I have no idea how to figure this out via google. (The obvious search terms found in this very query turn up nothing useful.)
What do you think? If someone went to school for two years right now to get a second bachelor’s in dietary science or some such thing, are they going to graduate finding out there are no jobs available?
It’s sciency, involves helping people (more or less directly depending on the exact job), is not, we gather, very mathy, and she already has a great deal of interest and some experience and success with the subject. For example She’s already acting as a mentor for two separate groups of people online in health and nutrition. And another phenomenon I label here as “success with the subject” is that she has, for a few years now, through critical thought, careful planning and dedicated follow-through, nutrition*-scienced her way to a very fit body. She’s kind of my hero in this regard actually.
