Do I Need More Education To Get A New Job?


How do I know when it is time to go back to school for further education or a second degree?
-Looking for knowledge, Los Angeles

Anyone who has ever held a job has developed skills.  Some of the skills we realize we don’t want to use, and other’s we realize we love to use them, or want to learn them better.  Before making a decision to go back to school, identify what you want your next career to be.  Evaluate your skills and see if they are transferrable.  If they are, you will need to market yourself and your skills.
If you really do not have the skills, or are changing career areas completely, then further education might be necessary.  Going back to school is expensive and in many cases time consuming, so be really sure about what you want before you return for more education.
