Get a Career Edge with Online Learning

Get a Career Edge with Online Learning  Some of today’s smartest students are using online learning to jumpstart their professional success.

“I took StraighterLine’s Introduction to Business course last year when I was applying for jobs,” says one StraighterLine student. “It helped me get my job as an office manager for a medical practice, because I was able to talk with more confidence in interviews. And interviewers were impressed that I had taken the course to prepare for my first job.”

That’s only one way to use online courses to increase your career success. You can apply these strategies too . . . 

  • Take online courses to prepare to work in specific industries. If you are interested in finding a job in one of the fast-growing health care professions, for example, you can take introductory online courses about physiology, medical terminology, or other scientific subjects.
  • Take online courses to finish college in less than four years. You can study over summers between your college years, transfer the credits to your college, and enter the job market earlier.
  • Use online courses to prepare for a civilian career while you are still in the military. If you are in the service, you can take college courses anytime, anywhere.  Even if you are deployed outside the U.S., you can use online courses to add the knowledge and skills you need to compete for sought-after jobs after you reenter civilian life.
  • Use computerized courses to add the skills you need to advance a career that you have already begun. If you are already working as a personal trainer, for example, you can prepare to become a nutritionist too by taking the right courses online.

Those are only a few ways that online learning can help you build your success today. It’s a tool that some of today’s most successful people are using. Chances are it can help you build your success too.
