By 2018, 60% of U.S. jobs will require post-secondary education . The good news is that it is easier than ever to further your education without adding unmanageable stress to you or your family. Dr. Mary Hawkins, president of Bellevue University, gives her tips on how adults can overcome the education gap to achieve their life goals.
A recent Bellevue University study revealed, nearly 40% of Americans say they are not where they want to be in life . Twenty percent want to make a career change, but feel they lack the necessary education. With competition high for jobs, many feel trapped in their current roles, and the American Dream feels just out of reach for too many people. But the tough climate has also forced people to reconsider what they truly want to achieve in life. Many have taken the opportunity to return to school and pursue career paths they have only dreamed about.
