Career Advancement Is Important

Why is career advancement so important? Because many of us believe that we know everything that we need to know for our current job. We are competent and it’s just not exciting or fulfilling anymore to do this work. We want something new, something challenging, and something more rewarding.

If you are in this situation, you understand what I’m saying.  Doing the same things, over and over again, in your current job is one thing. But not making forward progress with new responsibilities or meaningful raises is your signal to make a change. And a graduate education is your key to this advancement.

Watch Out For Marketing Websites

There’s no shortage of ‘advice’ on the Internet if you are trying to determine your next best career steps. But there is a shortage of unbiased, comprehensive information about online master’s degree programs. Most websites that offer information about online degree programs are actually marketing websites. These include: MBA.com, Bestmastersdegrees.com, Guidetoonlineschools.com, Onlineeducationdatabase.com, and others. These websites are designed to capture your personal information to sell to university online programs. And the online programs they provide this information to are their customers, not you.

The online education market is very sales-driven. This means most of the ‘free’ information offered about online programs is designed to sell you something (that you may not even want). If you use one of these marketing websites, you will quickly find yourself fielding phone calls from Enrollment Advisers. These advisers are from the universities that use these marketing websites to generate leads for their programs.  If you are serious about career advancement, you should avoid these websites. You may find yourself ‘sold’ into an online program before you even have a chance to complete your due diligence.  Considering how much you will spend for a graduate degree, it’s worth the effort to find the right program!

Good Information Paves The Way

Dionne completed her bachelor’s degree at a small, private college in Texas. She’s worked for three years in the Marketing Department of a major retail firm. People in her organization advance in their career faster if they complete their MBA. But she has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. It never occurred to her that there are many online MBA degree programs that accept applicants who don’t have a business bachelor’s degree. She also doesn’t know that there are online MBA degree programs that don’t require GMAT scores! Where can she get this information? Not on a marketing website like the ones identified above.

There are many students, just like Dionne, who found a new website that helps them find the right online program. This new source is the Online Degree Database. Learn about online degree programs from a source that was designed for you, the prospective student.
