Furthering Your Education as a Reno Job Seeker


As you search your Reno jobs, you should be on the lookout for ways to find an edge over the competition. To find it, you may want to consider furthering your post-secondary education. Going back to college, or attending for the first time, can give your current career a boost, or it can kick-start a career change. Here are a few reasons why you should hit the books again:

1. Getting a degree makes you far more marketable: we live in a higher education rich economy. It’s not a secret that jobs that require degrees are usually higher paying and that those kinds of jobs are growing at a rapid pace. Getting an advanced degree (or even just a bachelor’s) will make you more attractive to employers.

2. It can increase your expertise in your field: going back to school can give you an edge in your current career field. Picking up an advanced degree can increase your knowledge of your field, as well as set you up for more responsibilities and possibly higher pay.

3. It’s helpful for career changes: one of the more difficult challenges facing those trying to change careers is aquired the required skills for their desired field of work. The easiest why to do that is to go to school and take classes on them, and picking up a degree in that field will help you land a job that will launch your new career.

4. School is full of connections: networking is extremely easy if you spend a significant amount of time on a college campus. Many professors have experience in the professional world, and they make valuable wells of information and advice. Joining clubs that specialize in certain careers and tapping alumni groups will help you make even more connections. Job recruiters also frequently visit schools, so keep an eye on them too.
