Career Advice

January 10, 2010

career match One of my friends is a “life coach” who specializes in career counseling. I had lunch with her last week, and had a chance to pick her brain about the kind of advice she dispenses to people who are unsure about what they want to do in life. Often, she seeks to get to the bottom of their goals and ambitions by determining their likes, dislikes, and general aptitude for certain subjects. Once she has a better idea of the personality behind the person, she can make a recommendation — which usually includes getting a degree first.

One of the schools my friend has recommended often is Northwestern College. Northwestern is an accredited educational institution that offers several online degree programs that can benefit students looking to jump start their careers. For instance, you can earn a business administration degree that will help get your foot in the door at the best companies around. The classes are affordable, flexible, and convenient, allowing you to bolster your resume while still working full-time or taking care of your family.

I’m not sure how many clients have followed my friend’s advice about getting a business degree before conducting a job search, but I’d like to think that at least a few have achieved the success they were looking for. I have an online business degree myself, and am much better off because of it, so I can attest to that part at least!
