The US Department of Labor reports that new graduates with technical degrees are likely to find employment faster, including majors in computer programming, small business administration, health care, and graphic design. An associates degree can save you time and money, by transferring later to a regular 4-year degree program. Further, many varied careers are available to people who hold associates degrees. Many young people are natural business entrepreneurs, raised with new technology such as developing apps for the iPad and iPhone. Business majors may focus on starting their own small business, if the job market is tight. The greatest downside to an associates degree in the job market is that you will be competing with individuals holding bachelors degrees. Therefore, make sure you're comfortable in the niche you've chosen, and have developed strong job skills.
