Since it is the start of school for many people, I have education on my mind. For the past two years I have been working on obtaining my masters of communication and I happy to say that I have finally finished!
I believe that having a masters is extremely helpful in today’s job market. Currently the percentage of people who have a masters in the US is around 7-8%. Knowing this, it only stands to reason that if you have a masters and are also interviewing against other candidates that don’t have one, that you might have a leg up.
I even stumbled upon Ben Edwards’ post: 3 Ways a Master’s Degree Can Boost Your Career & he gives some information about how getting a masters can help you.
Have you gone back to school for your masters, or have you been thinking about it?
Even though I am done with school, I can honestly say that I will be ever learning.
