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.

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 yields 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.
