RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I was recently laid off for a couple months starting at the first of the year and signed up to take an on-line class to further my education and possibly make myself more marketable in todays demanding job search. I started the classes in February and after two weeks I was called back to work. It became very overwhelming to try to keep up with the class and still work at the same time. The courses I was taking were from a institutue in the east and I was having trouble with the time difference and responses back from the professor. I was told at the time of registering that I would need 10-15 hours per week to complete my assignments but it was requiring much more. I decided that I needed to quit the class and was left with a $900.00 bill that became due upon my quitting. The moral of this is to do some research before signing on, take classes locally and be sure that you will have the time to commit to them.
