As a funeral service professional, you have the opportunity to help individuals and their surviving loved ones prepare for and respond to death. Funeral directors have the important role of explaining the various services available, taking care of the important details, and providing options that fit within a family’s budget.
Consider a career in funeral service
You may choose a career in funeral service at any point in your life. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) anticipates the funeral service job market to grow over the next ten years due to a large number of funeral directors preparing for retirement and the aging Baby Boomer generation.
There’s always a need for well-trained funeral service professionals and employment opportunities are expected to grow.
It’s easy to let your imagine run wild when picturing the work of a funeral director, but of course the truth is much more down to earth than what you’ve seen on television.
