Do you love your job? Or is it simply something to pay the bills? According to Robin Ryan, career consultant and author of “What to Do With the Rest of Your Life,” over 30 million people in the United States daily attend a job that they hate.
Ryan suggests that these negative feelings towards their jobs make their way into daily life and effect their relationships, social lives and over all satisfaction with their life. Does this describe you? If so, it may be time to change careers and pursue a higher education.
It has become commonly accepted knowledge that the average person will change careers seven to eight times during the course of their lives. Many of these changes are due to job dissatisfaction, which is repeated in their new job. Ryan suggests making your next career change a dramatic one – one that will provide you with a meaningful job that will add significant value to your life.
How Can An Online Degree Change My Life?
Online degrees offer the opportunity for students to pursue higher education while maintaining the responsibilities and duties of daily life. It becomes possible for a dissatisfied employee to create a strategy that helps them safely transition into a new, satisfying career.
What does life-changing really mean? The exact definition is entirely up to you. For some, it may mean earning a more lucrative salary. For others, it may mean helping other people. If you are one of the 30 million Americans that hate their job, it can be assumed that “life-changing” means transitioning to a career that earns both a livable wage and job satisfaction.
