Online Education Helps You Advance Your Skills While Staying In The Workforce

In these uncertain times, when the economy is not doing all that great, it is very important to stay up to date on your job skills or acquire new skills that will make you more valuable to your current as well as future employers. Getting a college degree or higher degree is one way to make this happen.

But you don't want to leave your current job to pursue an education for a couple of reasons. First of all, it causes an interruption in your income and career. Secondly, it is quite unnecessary since there are online courses that allow you to earn a degree while still having a job.

The Chronicle of higher education is a good source of information about which college degrees are in demand in the work force. Gone are the days when a college degree was all that was required to get a good job. Now, you have to be more picky, and make sure your degree is in the right field to advance your career. The Chronicle can also be a good source of information about the quality of colleges and degrees, tuition and other costs, etc.

The department of Education can be another source of information about educational institutions, student aid available, etc. The site is also a good place to find out about accreditation standards.

One of the universities that makes the promise of higher education more accessible to people in the workforce is Walden University. Walden University is geared towards adult learners who take courses online while working in a full-time or part-time job at the same time. It is accredited, and has faculty that is devoted to teaching online with innovative methods that make the quality of the education equivalent to or better than what you would get in a classroom setting.

Walden has bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs in various fields such as Education, Management and Technology, Health Sciences and Social Sciences. Financial aid and loans are available to help qualified students attain their educational goals without letting finances stand in the way.

Given the importance of having a good education and the right credentials in this competitive job environment, it may be a good idea to look at an online university with fresh eyes. In a few years, you could have an education that qualifies you for better opportunities in your current workplace, or prepares you for opportunities at a better workplace. And you don't have to give up your current job or the income it brings in, in order to attain this qualification. That is a win-win situation!
