Have you considered the possibility of furthering your education and wondered if now is the right time to return to school? Boardman Training Center (BTC) is here to help guide your decision-making with 5 questions to help you decide if it’s time to go back to school!
1. Are you at a dead end?
Have you worked in the same position for years without seeing much advancement? Or perhaps you have reached the highest level you can within your current job. The possibility for growth can be extremely important when considering your future career path. Ask yourself whether or not your current position has opportunities to increase your salary, respect, and job satisfaction. If your answer is no, it may be time to consider furthering your education.
2. Are you looking for more?
Do you feel excited to wake up every morning and go to work? Or does your job feel like a burden? The average person will spend one-third of their life at work, so job satisfaction is paramount to overall happiness. If you feel like you want to be doing more, then going back to school can help you gain a sense of fulfillment!
3. Do you see your life differently in 5 years?
You’ve probably heard the infamous interview question, “Where do you see yourself in five years?” Taking some time to think about what you want your life to look like years down the road can help you determine what steps are necessary to get there. If you see yourself in a career that is attainable by furthering your education, then now is the time to return to school to get your future self up for success.
4. Do you have an interest in healthcare?
Are you compassionate, wanting to help others, or interested in the medical field? If this sounds like you, then getting on the track to a healthcare career might be your next step. Healthcare is a respected profession with various career paths to fit every individual’s interests and goals. However, some positions require formal education, so it is important to research schools that offer programs that align with the specific position you are interested in.
Boardman Training Center’s programs allow students to be prepared for healthcare careers in weeks rather than the years they would spend at a traditional school. With current program offerings in Phlebotomy Technician, EKG Technician, Cardio Phlebotomy, Medical Assisting, and Medical Billing and Coding, students can learn the essential skills they need to start a new career in the medical field. Additionally, BTC students benefit from certification* preparation for their specific industry, which can show employers that they possess the skills and knowledge needed to work competently in the position.
5. Do you have a strong desire to learn new things?
If you constantly want to expand your knowledge and feel prepared to do so in a formal setting, going to school might be a good option for you! If you have the desire to learn a new skill set and start a new career that will change your life, furthering your education might be just what you need to get started.
