Since the economic downturn of 2008, Americans have been at an all time low in terms of job satisfaction. In fact, according to a 2014 Forbes article, 52.3 percent of Americans are unhappy with their employment.
While the primary causes of these work-related doldrums are likely related to job security, wages and vacation time, for many Americans, unrealized educational goals are the object of ire.
Unfortunately, there is a misconception that school isn’t economically feasible for non-traditional students in their late 20s and older. Although it is true that a college education can be expensive, and the cost of tuition and fees is on the rise, there is now an unprecedented variety of scholarships for adults to continue or finish school.
