Should I go Back to School?

User Rating: / 2

The decision to go back to school is not an easy one to make. It is an investment of both time and money and not a short term “fix” for your unemployment. However, it might be the right decision for you and your family. Before you make the commitment to return to school, please consider the following:

Why are you thinking about going back to school?

Why is going back to school on your mind lately? Is it because your bachelors degree or certificate will help you get a better job or change industries? Or are you bored and looking for a way out of your current situation? Regardless of why you are considering going back to school, it is important that you have a very clear and definitive reason.

Going back to school for the wrong reasons is a recipe for disaster. Without a clear vision of what you want to accomplish by returning to school you might not have the determination you need to see it through.

If you are exploring going back to school, please discuss this with your family and spend a great deal of time researching what type of school and program you need to enroll in order to meet your objectives.


You might consider an associates degree online which requires less time and money – something like computer programming classes.
