CakeSniffer :  Oh no I completely agree! Something in the business/marketing side would really be beneficial for you I think.

I was referring to what I would tell younger high school graduates as a word of advice about a two year degree in a field that would yield a high return. Sorry if my post was confusing!

That is awesome that your employer is willing to pay!

Classes from your associate’s will likely have expired if they were taken more than 10 years ago. Exceptions are typically made for humanities and English classes, but math and science are pretty firm. So just something to keep in mind. 

I recommend this interest inventory (link below) and then when it asks you select a “job zone” choose job zone 4 – that’s typically a bachelor’s degree level of training. It will suggest jobs based on your interests and level of training and you can click on them and get an awesome summary page of info and can even be linked to schools in your area offering majors likely to lead to that career. That last functionality isn’t perfect, but it will give you a good idea! 

Let me know if you have any questions or want more help. This is my FAVORITE thing to do with students. (I work at a community college helping students with transfer and figuring out what they want to major in/their career goals.)
