Take Advantage of Financial Aid
Why Investing in Your Education Benefits Your Employer Too
Learning online offers the flexibility to continue in your current job. This may allow you to take advantage of employee tuition reimbursement, offered by many corporate employers.
If you need help convincing your employer to support your education, here are three reasons the benefits of tuition reimbursement go both ways:
You’ll be bringing new skills to your organization right away. As you upgrade your skill set in preparation for your future, they’ll see the benefits of a more skilled, driven employee today.
Seeking, interviewing and onboarding new talent is a costly process for your employer. Retaining your skills and experience makes economic sense. Not to mention the IRS tax breaks they can leverage for providing educational support.
No Disruption to Work:
With online, asynchronous education, you’ll be able to keep your work schedule consistent, completing your daily coursework when it makes sense for you.
Ask your human resources department, or your manager, if your organization would consider tuition reimbursement.
