Dorsey Schools Releases Free Career Outlook Guides


Dorsey Schools has been a trusted provider of career training and education in Michigan for over 80 years.  Throughout that time, Dorsey has helped thousands of men and women train for exciting new careers in fields such as allied health, cosmetology, culinary arts, skilled trades, and business support specialties.  Dorsey has been and continues to be a partner in helping its students along with the communities in which they live and work and that’s why Dorsey Schools has long operated with the saying, Michigan Skills for Michigan Jobs.

As part of their continued commitment, Dorsey Schools has recently released three Career Outlook Guides that can be downloaded for free from the Dorsey Schools website.  The Career Outlook guides are meant to be an additional resource for those who may be looking at training for a new career.  For some, they may be tired of going from one job to the next.  For others, they may wish to transition from a “job” into more of a career.  Others may simply be looking to make a better life for themselves and/or their family.  Regardless of the specific reason, Dorsey has introduced these guides that take a closer look at projected job growth, details about specific programs, and a look at what someone may expect in certain careers.  The Career Outlook Guides are currently available for various Healthcare/Medical programs, Cosmetology, and Culinary Arts.


If you’ve dreamed of taking your passion for hair, make-up, and nails and transforming it into a career you love, Dorsey School of Beauty can help you train for a beautiful new career.  Now is a great time to enter the Cosmetology field.  According to the US Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, the projected job growth for Cosmetologists from 2012-2022 is 13%, which is as fast as average a.  While Cosmetologists most often work in salons, some may also work in resorts, spas, or even hotels.  Some may even manage salons or choose to open their own business after several years of experience.  The field of Cosmetology offers various possibilities for those looking to use their creativity and artistic abilities each and every day!

Culinary Arts

Did you know that 80% of restaurant owners and 90% of restaurant managers began their careers in entry-level positions b, according to the National Restaurant Association?  In addition, it’s expected that there will be 1.7 million new jobs by 2025b.  Taking all of that into consideration, there are opportunities for those who wish to pursue a career in the Culinary Arts.  For those who get excited about taking simple ingredients and transforming them into delicious dishes and tasty treats, training for a career in Culinary Arts may be a good fit.  Graduates from the Culinary Arts program at Dorsey Schools have gone on to pursue a number of entry-level employment opportunities in the field in roles such as cooks, bakers, short-order cooks, prep cooks, and caterers (just to name a few).  Culinary Arts positions are available in a variety of establishments that serve food such as restaurants, hotels, hospitals, schools, and resorts.  If the kitchen is where you feel most comfortable, now is a great time to begin training for a career in the Culinary Arts and Dorsey Schools can help you get that new career cooking!


It shouldn’t be a surprise that as the baby boomer generation continues to age, there will be an increased demand for skilled professionals to work in healthcare in a variety of different jobs and positions.  Healthcare is also a diverse field and someone interested in pursuing a career can choose from a number of different paths.  For example, some may wish to work inside a doctor’s office as a Medical Assistant, where others may find more fulfillment providing home health care as a Patient Care Technician.  There may even be opportunities for those who don’t like the sight of blood; Medical Billing and Coding professionals play an important role in today’s healthcare system as well and Dorsey’s Medical Administration and Billing program can help you break into this area of healthcare.  If you’re looking to make a difference in the lives of others, the field of healthcare may be right for you.  Dorsey Schools has a variety of Medical/Healthcare programs to assist in training the allied health care professionals of tomorrow.
