People who take the online assessment will gain the confidence they need to select an appropriate online degree program
Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) June 9, 2008
Millions of Americans are stuck in jobs where they are not satisfied. Lack of education often serves as a barrier for potential career changers and career advancers because researching new career paths and educational choices can be overwhelming. But it doesn't have to be that way. eLearners.com, a web resource of EducationDynamics, in cooperation with LiveCareer, has created a free career assessment tool, located at http://www.elearners.com/resources/self-assessments.asp, to help people find the best career and, in turn, the best online degree program for them to achieve their goals.
"People who take the online assessment will gain the confidence they need to select an appropriate online degree program," said Terrence Thomas, Chief Marketing Officer for eLearners.com, which connects prospective students with online learning providers. "People often turn to expensive career coaches for similar guidance, but this solution is quick, easy and free."
For many people an accredited online degree program is the perfect match when pursuing a new career because of the flexibility the programs offer. By studying online, students can set their own schedules and study from home. For those interested in online courses and classes, but need advice, the career assessment tool will help by:
1. Identifying the Best Career Match
The career assessment tool allows people to define the tasks, experience, education and training needed for their next career move. It's an essential tool when making tough career decisions and helps people find careers they might not otherwise explore. Once students find their career match, they can then search eLearners.com's comprehensive database of online degree programs.
2. Narrows the Search
There are around 37,000 possible careers in North America and close to 300 academic majors. With so many choices, it's hard to know where to begin. That's where a personal assessment can help narrow down the search.
3. Prevents Costly Career Mistakes Pursuing unclear career objectives can be a waste of money. Instead of wasting time and money on unnecessary online degree programs, the career assessment can help people find a job that allows them to be productive, happy and self-confident.
Once someone identifies their career path, it is much easier to find the right online degree. eLearners.com offers an extensive database of 2,000+ accredited degree programs, online courses and online classes. Prospective students can search the database to find a program that matches their career assessment recommendations.
eLearners.com also offers a comprehensive database of programs and information for students to determine if attending an online college is right for them, including the eLearners Advisor, an assessment that measures online learning compatibility with the prospective online learner. In addition, with the current credit crunch, eLearners.com's Student Loans and Financial Aid Center can help students find financial support in paying for college, including the Debt-Free College Guide and online scholarships with more than $14 billion in financial aid.
