Get A New Day Job, One Night At A Time
So now, you might be thinking about going back to school. Changing your life for the better makes sense. But how can that work if you’re already working? Growing up, your school schedules were during the day. High school classes might have started at 8 a.m. and ended at 3 p.m. Your shifts overlap with that. How can you make school work? Your answer might be night school. It’s more doable than you think. Here’s a breakdown of what billing and coding night school is like:
- Classes take place Monday – Thursday from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. You’ll still have the whole day to go to work (or do whatever else you need to do). And three hours in a classroom at a stretch doesn’t sound too bad, does it?
- Did you notice that classes are just four days a week? That leaves weekends and Fridays open for your day job and for studying (and fun stuff too).
- You could complete the program in 13.5 months. Sure, over that time you’ll have some long days, and it’ll take a commitment. But what’s a little over a year when you’re thinking about the rest of your life?!
