I love to read MSN and Google news every morning. The other day, while contemplating returning to school for my M.B.A, I came across an article titled: “Degrees That Hiring Managers Want.” I must say, it made me realize how much times have changed. Gone are the days when a bachelor degree is enough. In this economic downfall with layoffs occurring in every industry that little piece of paper may be your ticket to a job and of course better pay. Many people have opted to go back to school–but what should you study?
It’s great that we have the choice to go back to school (loans included) but hey, Obama only recently paid off his loans from the sales of The Audacity of Hope. It’s great to want to continue one’s education, but let’s be honest; we also want job security, great benefits and excellent pay. That’s a lot to wish for but not impossible to achieve. There’s a long list of jobs that can be an added benefit in this market. Whether it’s healthcare profession or information technology, there are positions that enable you to hit-the-ground-running so to speak.
If you’re considering a new career field, or laid-off and want to go back to school, check out a few positions from MSN.com that can point you in the right direction.

Good luck to all those who have decided to go back or thinking about going back to school. It’s definitely harder the second time around, with children, full-time careers and personal responsibilities.
