2h - Career Areas

As of July 2018, the placement screen has a new version of the CAREER AREA (or CAREER FOCUS AREA) field.  The field uses a datalist type of entry.... type any word such as "Medical" or "Construction" or "Sales"  Entries containing that word will appear.  Choose the entry that best describes the job.  Or back up and type a different word to look for other options.  Here is a copy of the list (as of July 2018).  This list may be modified as suggestions are offered.    The first column contains the list of Career Areas (in alphabetical order); the second is just FYI, with some general career clusters.
