Those who opt to enter the workforce immediately after high school may quickly realize that most careers require further skill training and education. Even with professional experience in a variety of environments, they may still need a focused education in the field of interest to pursue a career.
With some experience under their belts, students returning to school have a few advantages over their peers who enrolled immediately after high school. They can look at their work experience and determine what aspects of each job they enjoyed. Based on what they find, they can choose a college program that appeals to their passions and strengths in a job environment.

Once students have decided on the right option for them, they can enroll in a program like the Accounting and Payroll Administrator program at CDI College. To begin enrollment, fill out the form on the right.
