If you find technical school more appealing and have a specific field in mind, consider pursuing that path to gain practical skills and clarity about your career. It's also okay to explore general education courses at college to discover your interests before committing to a specific career path.
That's what General Ed's are for.. You have almost 2 years of generic courses before your major becomes a factor in your educations.
I would like to share the importance of working for a company that offers tuition reimbursement for degrees and certificates. If you work for a company that offers a tuition reimbursement program I highly recommend taking advantage of that opportunity so you can grow your career. When you get an education you will allow yourself to move out of those entry level positions and into a management role. Not only will you move up the organizational ladder, you will have zero student loan debt which is a huge financial problem for a lot of college graduates.
From my own experience I was fortunate enough to work for an employer that offered a tuition reimbursement program after one year of working for them. They paid for my B.A. In Organizational Management, A.A. in Business Management, Six Sigma and PMP certificates. I was able to achieve all these credentials and not pay a dime out of my pocket. I have zero student loan debt. Although I’m a Commercial Driver now, when I was working in warehouses I was able to get myself out of those pesky entry level positions and into a management role. I’ve seen people stuck in the same position for 10+ years and that’s not something I wanted to fall into. So if you’re a job seeker, look for a company that offers tuition reimbursement and take advantage of it. I can guarantee you it’s life changing that will advance your career, provide financial growth, and most importantly boost your morale and confidence.
Some companies that offer tuition reimbursement are Amazon, UPS, and Target. If you can land a job at any of those companies I suggest you get those free credentials. Amazon offers the best tuition reimbursement program that allows you to pursue degrees and certifications outside of their scope of business. Some certificates they allow you pursue are aircraft mechanics, computer-aided design, medical lab technologies, and nursing. Keep in mind these occupations are in high-demand and will compensate you well. You want to target industries that have a shortage of skilled workers for you to earn a high salary. Make yourself valuable.
What area do you usually work in?
My main focus works be with women suffering from domestic abuse and other traumas. I've been through the same thing and I will be able to relate to women who need someone affordable to talk to and with through the trauma. I'm a survivor and I have my counselors and therapists who helped me get to the place I am today. I'm happy and not walking on egg shells anymore.

I’m a survivor of domestic violence myself and I am an ARMS (abuse recovery ministry and services) Leader. That would be a good place to start your training in that field and we are in need for some more leaders. If you are interested call the ARMS office at 509-484-0600 The next step would be to get your masters in counseling. I myself chose Colorado Christian University but there are many more qualified universities and colleges. I hope this helps
Get a master in social work, then get license as a therapist/ counselor. Do not take out a bunch of loans. Look for state university where you can pay per class, or perhaps an employer that offers pay tuition as a benefit to employees. I think Amazon is now offering tuition assistance?
Okay, I know Jobcase is mainly supposed to be for looking for jobs and finding answers and all that, but does anyone know where I can go to college to get my degree in Creative Writing? Do you know if ASU or NAU is a good place to go for that? I'm about to graduate high school in June, and I don't know what college would be best for the subject I want to study for. #college #degree #creativewriting #advice #education
I believe that your college experience should be about more than simply getting a high paying job, and your major should be chosen based on your interests as well.
That being said - here are some of the top paying college majors of 2021!
- Engineering ($182,000)
- Economics ($139,600)
- Accounting ($138,800)
- Medicine/Pharmacy ($133,200)
