Education & Training
To Learn is To Earn
Educate yourself to gain independence, job security, and personal fulfillment. New knowledge and skills can get your foot in the door, a promotion, or your dream job. These skills can be gained through various approaches, forms, and timeframes, including online classes, technical training programs, apprenticeships, internships, licensure opportunities, or hobbies you can turn into a full-time career.

Every Person Chooses A Unique Path
Few people will work in the same role or even career until retirement, and most work at least a dozen different jobs over the course of their career. Being strategic with your education and training choices offers you flexibility throughout your life.
At each transition point—high school to first job, entry-level to manager, one career to something completely different—you’ll need training and education, especially as the job market continues to evolve. Expertise, interpersonal skills, and a strong work ethic are the best currency in an ever-changing job market.
The pathways that lead to skills and knowledge are nearly infinite and, frankly, fun to think about. Free online classes. Work-based training. Master’s degrees. Apprenticeships. Professional certificate programs. There is no right or wrong path, just choices.
Follow your curiosity, talent, interests, and passions to identify and develop your professional competencies. Don’t settle or sell yourself short. The world needs your gifts.
