Just when you think that the economy is getting back on track, more and more workers are losing their jobs as companies and even the government cut their expenses.
Recently, three of my co-workers were laid off. Even though I feel like I have a stable job, I can’t help but think of how I’ll cope if I will lose my job. I guess I need to take further studies to keep me ahead of the competition or to find a job in a more promising field, just in case something went wrong with my current work.
Yes, I’m planning to study again soon (or I might end up sorry later if I still wait). But it’s hard to do it when you’re working 5 days a week, right?
A friend of mine suggested to take online classes instead. And she has a point! You can study at your own pace, your own time and you save a lot on transportation costs (now that gas prices are still high). Besides, it’s already the information age and online classes seems like the trend of the future.
Looking for sites online, I came across WaldenU.edu. Have you heard about this school before? I am quite interested to learn about Walden. Walden University’s online degree programs seems like a good fit to working professionals like me. They offer doctoral degree, Ed.S., mater’s degree, bachelor’s degree, principal preparation and teacher preparation programs. They also have endorsement and certificate programs – even non-degree programs.
I guess it’s time to give their enrollment adviser a call and inquire about their programs and their financial aid options as well.
