With all the media attention revolving around student loan issues, it can make many of us feel as if taking out student loans to pay for college is the only option. Students are taking out loans larger than ever before, and the combined national student debt grew to a whopping $1.3 trillion earlier this year. However, there is good news for fiscal-minded students who want to graduate from a college without the pressure of college loans.
In many high schools across the nation, shop class is non-existent. Consequently, so are the potential trades-people that are born out of that early exposure to tools and machinery. What is America going to do without skilled workers who can build and fix things?
Have you ever looked at an existing product or service and thought to yourself, “I can do this better?” Do you have a skill or talent that can fill a need in the marketplace? In today’s ever-changing economy; the idea of being your own boss may be very appealing. You can follow your passion while building something that you can call your own. But before you take the plunge, think about why you want to start a business and what you want the business to provide for you. The truth is, owning your own business is hard work.
Ed4Career created Ed4Credit to assist people in obtaining their dream of a college degree. Ed4Credit offers a completely affordable opportunity for students to start their evolution through education.
How it works:
A phrase caught my attention a while back; “whether you know it or not, you are marketing yourself each and every day.” How true! We are sending messages about ourselves in everything we do – every action we take, every word we speak, every email we send. From holding the door for a stranger to how we treat the customer service representative on the other end of the phone – we are giving others a glimpse of who we are.
If you are an active duty or National Guard/Reserve servicemember, veteran or military spouse – have you thought about the portability an online education could offer you?
Online education is a great way for servicemembers to go back to school while serving their country. Online courses and degree programs are developed specifically to provide the flexibility needed to fit the op-tempo and duty schedules of servicemembers as well as the hectic lifestyles of military spouses.
In 1999, the Senate passed a resolution designating May as National Military Appreciation Month. That declaration encouraged the nation to observe and honor current and former members of the armed forces, including those who have died in the pursuit of freedom and peace. Each year the president makes a proclamation, reminding Americans of the important role the U.S. Armed Forces have played in the history and development of our country.
