Sometimes in your career you face a situation where to get ahead you need to have a certain kind of educational qualification. If you already have it then there can be nothing better but if you do not have that particular degree, you have two options, either you pursue the degree or sit and watch your peers get ahead of you. No one would like to choose the second option in their right mind, but getting a degree while continuing with your job is impossible. Which university or institute conduct classes only on the weekends? The answer is none probably. But it is not entirely impossible; difficult may be but possible all the same, with distance learning courses. Also known as associate degree courses, a wide variety of subjects are available for you to pursue. All you need to do is find institutes that offer distance learning in the subject of your choice and apply to them. You might have to appear for an entrance examination and once you are through with it, deposit the necessary amount of money. You would then be sent the study materials which you can study when you are free, in your own convenient time. Appear for exams and you would have your associate degree just like that. The exams for distance learning courses are usually held over the weekends or online such that working professionals do not have problem appearing for the exams. You can continue with your job all the while you go through your education process. This is probably the biggest advantage of distance learning courses; it allows you to continue with your present responsibilities without disrupting them for your studies. Another big advantage is that an associate degree takes much less time to complete than a regular full time course and it costs much less too. But even then, the value of such courses is no less than any regular course done from a god university, in the job market, if done from a good and reputed institute. Such distance education offering institutes can be found all over the world and hence you can pursue your selected subject from an institute close to your home or if not available there, from an institute situated in another country that is half way across the world. Hence go ahead in your career without compromising your job responsibilities or any other commitments in the process.
