What is RWM?
RWM stands for "Real Work Matters," and that's the core value of our website. It was created as a resource hub for students who are interested in vocational, trade or technical training after high school. Our goal is to provide the most recent information about trade schools and vocational careers in the U.S., and help students get matched up with the school that best fits their needs.
More and more people cannot afford to go to a four-year institution, which means vocational education is becoming more relevant to today's workforce.
Key Features of RWM
- Top Jobs Tool -- This tool was created to help our users search quickly for information on potential careers, including job growth and salary data pulled from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS.gov).
- Vocational Insights -- Our team of contributing writers does a monthly article about the state of vocational careers and education, and they are typically featured on our partner sites, MSN and USA Today.
- Vocational Programs -- This list of programs can help students find a school that matches to them. Click through to a program that you're interested in, read a bit about it, and then browse the schools to get more information.
