Does continued education result in higher earnings? Most often, yes. The time and money you invest in your education translates into a higher salary potential for you. Furthering your education is the best investment you can make in yourself.
In addition to an income-based return, we wanted to look at a few reasons why an investment in education can bring the most out of you, and open new doors and opportunities no matter what your area of study.
Education Represents Commitment & Dedication as Well as Earning Potential
Attaining a degree in any field is often considered a rite of passage, and is a sign of commitment, a vested interest in self-improvement, and the willingness to take your education and abilities to new heights. However, many students worry or ponder that a degree in a particular subject may limit their career opportunities rather than expand opportunities based on the limitations of the job market, or may pigeonhole them into only one line of work.
This could not be further from the truth; many employers today look for a degree or post-secondary education as a sign of the following:
- A student is willing to invest in themselves and shows a dedication to self-improvement.
- A student has the ability to see something complex through to completion.
- A student has the ability to employ critical thinking, reading, and writing at a professional level
These factors are self-evident for any student that may work to complete a post-secondary educational program, and we here at Advantage Career Institute Medical and Dental School value the opportunity to guide students in both personal skills and life-skills. By investing in your education, you not only give yourself the opportunity to earn more, but also a diversified portfolio of soft and hard skills that will benefit you throughout the rest of your life.
Learning in the Medical Field Never Stops
By making the investment in education, students not only learn the skills mentioned above but have the opportunity to better expand their skill-set and learning potential.
Many of our Medical Assistant students go on to Nursing School or another institution to further study the medical field and expand the knowledge and career that they started at ACI. By making the initial investment in education, students open not just one door, but an entire pathway to new opportunities and professional ventures.
With new research, procedures, discoveries, and more, healthcare professionals and medical students offer powerful portals into fields that are only continuing to grow. We arm students with the ability to change their life through empowerment, education, and soft skills but also empower them to change and touch the lives of everyone they eventually work with.
Growing Medical and Dental Industries Demand Skilled Workers
In a study as recent as last year, many agreed that a huge percent of vacant jobs in America were only vacant due to significant shortages in the skills required for the position. By making the investment for a career-specific educational program, you put yourself on track to take charge of your career, complete a certification in an in-demand field within just a few short weeks, and learn the best steps to develop your skills into something not only marketable, but life-changing as well.
