Ever have those days when you wonder how in the world that weirdo you call “boss” ever managed to tie his own shoes? What’s somebody like him doing in a position of leadership, anyway? You know you could do a better job of managing the department yourself.
But you don’t have the same education that frustrating boss has and, without a masters degree education, you are pretty much at the top rung of your own corporate career ladder. The boss has room for promotion.
How can you get out of the rut your career seems to be stalled in and put your career on the track for promotion instead of stagnation? Return to college and earn that much-rewarded masters degree education, just like the boss did.
Returning to school to complete a masters degree education will most certainly require a change in your daily schedule. Unless you make the studying a top priority, it’s likely to be a waste of time. This means you’ll be even more frustrated than you are now.
It’s likely a return to school will require some budgetary restrictions, too, but once that masters degree education is completed, you’re likely to land a better paying job and you can splurge in celebration then. It’ll feel better with that diploma in hand.
Most people need a little financial help while earning a masters degree education and there are provisions available to make it happen. Don’t let the lack of a ready source of school expense money turn you away.
Discuss financial need with a counselor or advisor at the school in which you’d like to enroll for a masters degree education program. They are trained to know all kinds of tricks for finding education money and they will be glad to help you, too.
And many jobs come with a company benefits package that includes financial assistance, even for studies at the level of a masters degree education. The only problem with this is that you’ll probably need to get approval for tuition reimbursement from that kook of a boss of yours.
But then, chances are, once you get to know him a bit better, he won’t seem like such a kook after all.
