Yahoo Hotjobs: Lawyer = "Hot Career for the Future"

4. Legal careers
Legal careers can allow you to work in any area that interests you, including environmental law, estate planning, personal injury, and politics. And there is a career for every education level--from legal-assistant certificate programs to bachelor's degrees in paralegal studies to Juris Doctor (JD) degrees for attorneys. Despite excellent growth in these professions, the BLS states that competition will be tough, and you'll need formal training to grab the best jobs. Earning potential for top-level pros ranges from about $60,000 for legal secretaries and assistants to about $75,000 for paralegals, to hefty six-figure salaries for lawyers.

Apparently it is a company that sells advertising space within its "articles."

I find it so appropriate that the definition of yahoo is "yokel: a person who is not very intelligent or interested in culture"

Insult to injury: That is the result of a google search

Even stupider:

3. Writing
Most working writers have bachelor's degrees in English, journalism, or communications, but other degrees are acceptable in many industries if applicants demonstrate good writing skills. Many work on marketing, instructional, and technical materials; online journalism is popular, too. (Only a few writers pen bestsellers and award-winning screenplays.) Many writers work as freelancers, so business courses can come in handy as well. In-demand professional writers and editors can earn six-figure incomes. There are many opportunities, but competition is keen because many people want to enjoy this career.

Copyright 1994. When both Yahoo! and legal careers looked promising.

Yeah and the one about Automotive Technicians....last time I read an article on that field it was talking about how many repair stations have gone under in the last 5 years.

So let's write an article about 3 fields that are sinking and pretend that they aren't. That way the Wyotechs, for profit MFA programs, and cash cow law schools won't sink.

I get it now...check out the author:

Schools in their 'network' --
Devry, U of Phoenix, Art Institutes, Walden University, Kaplan University

No surprise -- they are all for profit institutions peddling worthless degrees for $25k tuition per year.
