According to ACT, an international organization involved in educational and workplace skills assessments, the majority of recent high school graduates are unprepared for the jobs experiencing the most growth and many lack the desire to go into these high-growth occupations. In their recent report, "The Condition of College & Career Readiness", ACT reveals that students are unprepared and uninterested in the career fields that account for 53 percent of all projected jobs. These fields are education, computer/information specialties, management, community services, and marketing/sales.
