Associates Degree Can Help You In the Job Market

The Job market is a hot topic with our uncertain economy. Those who are lacking a higher education will most likely lose job opportunities to those who have earned at least some form of education beyond high school. Though earning a four year bachelors degree is not for everyone, earning your associates degree is a solid way to start entering the job market.

For those who entered the workforce directly from high school, an associate's degree is the first step toward better career opportunities and greater job security," said Adrian Marrullier, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of University Alliance Online, which provides enrollment and support services to Florida Tech University Online. "Students can complete an online associate's degree in less than 20 months and use that credential to move into a new career field, advance within their current job or transition into a bachelor's degree program."

Marrullier noted that online learning is a particularly appealing option for adults, for a variety of reasons. "The ability to attend class anytime and anywhere enables students to schedule their lectures around work, job interviews and family obligations. They don't have to spend time and money commuting to campus. And they don't have to worry about standing out in a sea of teenagers and 20-somethings; the Internet is a great equalizer."

The national unemployment rate is at its recent highest, and the future is uncertain. This means that those who earn an associate degree or higher will be better candidates when entering the job market, and more "in demand".
