3 Signs its Time to go Back to School

Deciding When to go Back to School

No matter the stage of life you are in, deciding to go back to school is a big decision. Choosing your area of focus while also risking time and a potential financial burden can make anyone think twice. The flipside is not pursuing your educational goals and getting stuck in a never-ending cycle of "what if?" It would be easier to make that important decision if there were some clear indicators that it was the right time. Let's take a look at 3 signs that it's time for you to go back to school.

No Growth Opportunity

Career stagnation can be a crippling feeling. Giving everything you have to a full-time position and not feeling challenged, rewarded, or engaged in your work can make the daily-grind difficult. It's important to have opportunities to grow, attain more responsibility, and earn a higher salary, in order to stay engaged in your job. Opportunities in the workplace allow you to expand into new areas and being able to grow is critical to your overall satisfaction and success. Lacking those opportunities can be detrimental to your work and it is a sign that it might be time to move on. Going back to school to learn new skills will introduce new opportunities and potentially an entirely new start.

You're Bored with Your Industry

Those who have been in the same industry for years can suffer from industry boredom. Boredom can be a warning that can make you feel restless and may be a sign you should look for a different position. Also, your performance on the job will likely decline if you aren't feeling challenged. Staying in a job that continues to bore you day after day means limiting your own potential. All of these signs may indicate that its time to branch out and learn something new.

Your Pockets are Running on Empty

Working and still not feeling adequately paid is a difficult situation to be in. Going back to school to learn new skills can be personally rewarding while also leading to more employment opportunities for higher-paying positions. Finding the right educational program aligned with your interests can kickstart your new career and provide the direction you need for a better job. If your financial goals are not being met, it might be time to consider going back to school.
