With so many newly unemployed finding it tough to find a new job right now, some are going back to school to hit the books and either brush up on their current skill set or learn a completely new trade. Some of these adult education programs lead to certifications or diplomas. There’s also a free program in Georgia called Certified Work Ready, where people can earn a certificate for completing a basic skill set program to make them more attractive in the entry-level job market.
Do you think now is the time to go back to school in order to make yourself more competitive in the job market or are you afraid of going into even more debt? If you already have completed one of these adult education programs, has it helped you in your job search?
