Today's competitive marketplace requires people with experience and skill. A college education is a terrific asset to one's resume, and a definite avenue towards gainful employment. For some, going to a traditional college is simply not a possibility. For others, attending an online university is their desire. No matter how you look at it, even though the quality of education received may be the same, society sometimes views distance learning as sub par. When it comes to the workforce, you may find a lot of competition among those holding a degree from a traditional college and those earning one solely online.
So what is in your corner when asked by a potential employer how effective earning your degree online has been? There are several, "selling points" to learning college level courses by yourself on a computer.
Before you head out to that big interview, think about the many positive aspects of completing an online degree, and bring those to the table. Be prepared to show your prospective employer you're capable of learning efficiently and quickly, and that you have achieved just as much as your traditional counterparts.
