January 26, 2010 | | Leave a comment Improving one’s education is at the forefront of New Year’s resolutions this year, according to USA.gov. Improving talents, learning new skills and getting a better degree are popular variations on the theme of education. “There’s a lot to be said about setting a resolution that you won’t quickly give up on. Education is one of the easiest resolutions to keep and one of the most rewarding,” says Peter Albrecht, a professor in Pittsburgh. According to USA.gov, the top New Year’s resolutions include losing weight, getting a better job, getting a better education, reducing stress at work and home, and saving money. Most of these resolutions can all be accomplished by earning a new degree. Improving education can increase value at the workplace, lead to a more profitable job and decreased stress. “Millions of people are utilizing the Internet to earn the degree they’ve always wanted. It’s a perfect resolution, and easier than ever to get,” says Chris Kirkham, an education analyst at ClassesandCareers.com, a free college information service. The benefits of earning a degree online include freedom to work from anywhere and at any time that is convenient, which means students can now earn a degree while working full time, serving in the military or while at home with children, says Kirkham. Classes andCareers.com has been assisting students to find the online degree that is right for them for almost a decade. They offer this service free of charge.
