As our country celebrates Labor Day -- the day we recognize the contributions of American workers -- many workers will reflect on their own jobs. Do their jobs provide a sense of personal accomplishment and financial rewards? Do their jobs offer opportunities for advancement? Work/life balance?
If not, perhaps the long weekend is a good time to consider how to achieve a more rewarding career. One way is through additional education. Many options exist for those who work. One is career-focused schools that offer short-term programs focused on high-demand professions, like medical assisting and massage therapy. They even offer convenient evening and weekend classes.
Although changing careers may seem daunting, countless people have done so successfully and say it was the best decision they ever made. Labor Day should be a reflection and celebration of your job.
