I went to college years ago. I got a degree, and then I ended up working in a different area altogether. Rather than going into the business field, I became an educator. I took an early retirement, but I quickly grew bored with it. I don’t like just sitting around and doing crafts or reading. I wanted to do something useful, which meant getting back into the working field. My cousin owns a marketing business, and she told me she would love to have me come onboard. She even told me about a Mini-MBA course that could help catch me up on the skills that I had not used in too long.
I admit I was a bit leery on going to work in a business related field where I would have to rely on my education. I do remember the vast majority of it, but I knew that some of it was probably very outdated. I did not want to go somewhere to work where I would have to take refresher courses at a university because that is a huge time requirement. I did not want to work and have to go to school at the same time.
My cousin’s offer was really great though. I would be able to take the online course at my own leisure. The company that provides this service has excellent reviews from others who have taken this course. It is not so much a refresher course as it is learning about the most current practices in the business field. That is exactly what I needed, and I ended up enrolling in the online course before I took my cousin up on her offer. By the time I was done with it, I felt very prepared to go to work for her at her company. I am very happy being back in the work field too!
