Swipe Right: How to Choose a Career School You’ll Love

Career School Decision

You want more than a minimum wage job. You’re ready for a career you can count on. But how do you choose that new career? And how do you find a career school in Michigan that is the right match for you? If you’re looking for your own happily-ever-after, follow these 4 steps and you could find a school you’ll love and the career of your dreams.

Start with you. You can’t know what you want unless you know who you are. Take a look in the mirror. What skills and talents do you already possess that might make you a perfect match for just the right career? Consider a self-assessment test like Type Focus or the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. These tests are designed to assess your individual strengths and interests and offer possible career matches.

Research your options. Once you’ve come up with a possible career path, it’s time to find a school. But don’t be hasty! Take time to choose a school match that fits your needs. You’ll want a school that offers the right programs, taught by career professionals who are as committed to your success as you are.

Fit your schedule. You’re so lucky! There are so many ways to further your education today.  You can attend classes on campus, online, or choose blended learning, which some studies show to yield the best results.1 Find a school and a schedule that works for you.

Commit to success. Just like a successful relationship requires time and commitment, so does your education. Create a realistic school and study schedule that you can stick to. Set goals and celebrate your accomplishments –big and small. And don’t be afraid to ask for help. No one achieves great things all alone.

“This program is good because it’s daily, it doesn’t give you time for slack. There is also lots of hands-on help, you’re not just left to do it all on your own. I was in college before and it just didn’t work out. Career Quest worked for me.”
