Life happens—things get in the way of original plans or unexpected change
occurs. “The only thing that is constant is change.” You may have heard this
quote from Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher in ancient times. Today this
statement still rings true, specifically in a person’s career. Given changes in the economy, technology,
and personal circumstances, you may find yourself considering a career change and asking “what’s next?” A
number of adult learners come back to school to pursue a career change . . . getting
back to an original goal, shifting with the times, or taking their next step in
Change is not necessarily
easy but it is certainly possible. We see this at Kaplan University with our students and alumni. We
hear many reasons for students coming back to school for a career change—wanting
more time with children, seeking a benefit their current job may not provide, or
being more confident and knowledgeable of their passions and wanting to pursue
a career associated with those. And of course, a large segment of adult
learners hope to advance into a managerial position. A degree can sometimes
close gaps in knowledge, sharpen skills, or build leadership competencies, giving
you an edge for that promotion.
Regardless of the reason,
one common denominator of adult learners is that they come to us with life
experience. Experience brings confidence in knowing what kind of job you want
to do (and what kind you don’t want to do). And, while many people experience
doubts about going back to school, once those feelings of hesitation are gone,
the focus and discipline of an experienced adult can be of great benefit. Here’s
a blog post about a woman with that sort of life experience. Marriage and
illness prompted quick decisions, but now she’s pursuing a new educational and career goal.
