At Kendall College many of our students are working professionals who have decided to return to school and earn a degree to advance their careers. Financially, this means many students are working full-time and going to school full-time.
Working and pursuing your higher education goals is manageable when you make time management your top priority. Here are some invaluable tips:
- Find a flexible position, and make an effort to maintain a communicative relationship with your manager. Prove yourself an asset in the workplace so your job will work with you to accommodate your class schedule.
- Schedule time off of work during midterms and finals once you have the syllabuses for your classes. Plan ahead to make extra time in your schedule during concentrated study times.
- Take advantage of online classes. The Early Childhood Education program at Kendall College offers many online courses, reducing commute time and conveniently connecting you with our top educators from the comfort of your home.
- Be proactive about scheduling breaks and time for you to relax throughout the week. Regular small breaks during the day and an evening or two to unwind and pursue your interests will leave you reinvigorating for your workload.
- Research and decide on your education objectives before you start your first semester. Create a four-year plan so you don’t take any extraneous classes and invest your time wisely.
