Many people see education as preparation for early childhood, elementary, or secondary school teaching (this is particularly true for the Bachelor of Education degree). However, a degree in education, undergraduate and graduate, can lead to other career paths. For example, graduates from education have positions in human resources, project coordination, event management, aid organizations, etc. Essentially, skills in human interaction and leadership are essential, and also the ability to take initiative and be innovative are valued.  Knowledge of education is useful in many volunteer or service organizations. They require oversight and planning for community recreation, life skills support, and environmental organizations. Employment opportunities exist in government organizations, volunteer organizations, and para-professional organizations.
