We are down to the final 2011 New Year’s Resolutions. So without further delay the final resolution this year is....
#1) Go back to school
Let’s be honest – 2010 was not an easy year in the ‘ol job field. Still recovering from the recession, many people found themselves stuck in unemployment. But being unemployed doesn’t have to mean that you have no choices. Continuing your education can be the smartest decision you’ve ever made. The best way to find a job when times are tough is to set yourself apart from the crowd. How? Going back to school and getting the skills and the knowledge to succeed.
Education is vital to a rewarding future career. And, with the popularity of online education, people can get the skills they need at a time and a place that’s convenient for them – not to mention the affordability. Companies like StraighterLine (where I work) and its online college course offerings can help you earn your degree and get back on the road to a more fulfilling future.
If you don't need to go back to school maybe you can help someone who needs a hand finishing, starting or just sticking with the process of earning their degree.
Best wishes for everyone as we head into the first work week of the New Year.
