Post Haste: Planning on farming or carrying mail after graduation? You're in luck; Boyd renovations prove costly

Those careers have some of the best job security, according to one article.

Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015:

Take note, Ohio University seniors: Farming and mail carrying aren’t bad gigs.

According to, both professions offer some of the best possible job security. Roughly 1 percent of both farmers and mail carriers are unemployed, according to the site.

It’s pertinent information, given fall semester is coming to a close and the reality of a job search is setting in for thousands of Ohio University students.

Also on the list were physicians, physician's assistants and speech-language pathologists — all careers OU has programs for, if you’d rather not carry the mail or deal in cow manure.
