What can I do with a Degree in Project Management?

If you are looking to begin a career in Project Management, education is an important consideration. Many organizations today prefer that their management team be well educated and some refuse to hire project managers who do not have at least some form of the college experience.

This also counts for students wishing to get into the field of Behavioral Support in the education world. If you are looking to begin a career in this field or further your career, it is important that you consider education options and how higher education can help you.

Those who are already working in project management have a few options available. A Project Management Certification is a good start and can help you to break into this career field.

If you are already working as a project manager, furthering your education will simply help you to qualify for higher positions in the future and show your organization that you are serious about your career.

Investing in your own training is a positive thing that can go a long way in showing your employer just how much you want to grow with your company.

Some professionals can actually ask their companies or organizations to help them by sponsoring their education. Many companies today offer education incentives to encourage their employees to gain higher education to specialize, for example, in behavioral science.

Onsego GED Prep helped me pass GED Math

To keep my job, I still needed to get my GED, but every time I took the math subtest, I failed but just by a few points!

I already passed the Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies portions, but Math seemed to be too much for me. All the time. I already tried it three times but failed just as many times, and I was getting a bit desperate, as you will understand.

Then last year, a friend of mine pointed my attention to the GED® prep course developed by Onsego. You can buy the entire GED course or just one GED subject.

So this past September, I bought the online GED Math course from Onsego. The content is nicely structured and comes with numerous video lessons and practice tests that covered all GED Math topics.

To make a long story short, I passed Math in December! Now I’ve got my GED, and I can keep my job. That makes me the happiest woman in the world!

But I have to be honest. If it wasn’t for the GED Calculator Course offered by Onsego, I guess I would still have been struggling to pass the math section. The Onsego course teaches you how to solve most math by simply using the GED Scientific calculator!

So, I took the Onsego Math course, and apart from the Calculator Course, the biggest help was the fact that the video lessons explained everything in a clear and understandable way. The course also included pretty clear transcripts and explanations on all GED topics and Math problems.

International Accreditation

There has been a lot of debate regarding international accreditation, its impact on students, and the benefits it has to offer. Following are a few facts that I have gathered, out of which some are known to many while others will come as a pleasant surprise.

On the basis of these facts and supporting research, suffice it to say that a university, either online or offline, that is internationally accredited certainly does a student more good than a regionally or nationally accredited university can.

Moreover, attaining international accreditation also benefits a university in many ways. It allows them to reach out to students in the most remote areas and offer high-quality degrees and diplomas that are universally accepted.

Regional Accreditation in Central America Capitals

In response to the need for tertiary-level studies in Central America Capitals and other cities over the past decades, we’ve seen many new colleges and universities open their doors to deal with the continually growing number of applicants. This response came mainly from the region’s private sector and happened without much regulatory oversight. So take a closer look at this post with Central America news on Regional Accreditation of academic institutions.

It was traditionally the responsibility of individual states or state-sponsored colleges and universities to safeguard the quality of education and degrees offered by a country’s institution of post-secondary education.

How To Decide On Your Major

Did you hear this advice  “Go with your heart?” I read it so many time on almost every educational blog. So let’s break down exactly what it means to “Go with your heart.” To go with your heart means to pick the major that you are sincerely most interested in. It means to pick the major that will get you the job that you will enjoy the most. But it also means to pick the major as if you were seven years old again. Let me explain.

Being eighteen has its advantages, but it also has its disadvantages – one of them being that you start to overanalyze nearly everything you do. Now you may be thinking to yourself, “I don’t overanalyze…wait, do I?” See, that’s what I’m talking about – stop second guessing!

When you were seven years old, you went with your gut. You said to yourself, “I am gonna go play in the mud.” Why did you play in the mud? Because it’s what you truly wanted to do. You didn’t sit there and think about the consequences, or the ramifications of playing in the mud. You did it because that’s what your heart told you to do, right?
