How to Choose the Right Course After Your Degree
First off, congratulations on your graduation! Now that you have graduated, let’s get you ready for the workforce. You want to make sure you have the best chance of landing your dream job. A course relating to your field might give you just the edge you need. Below you will find out how to choose the right course after your degree.
Why Choosing the Right Course is Important
Choosing the right course to study after your degree is not as difficult as you think. That does not take away from its importance though. By choosing the right course you could open yourself up to new amazing opportunities. This is why you need to make sure your course matches your desired career field. Studying a course different to your degree could have a major or no effect at all. So choose wisely!
How to Choose the Right Course After My Degree
When choosing the right course, you must make sure you are aware of all qualifications open to you. This will help you make an informed decision. This is not the only thing you should consider. Be sure to ask yourself these questions:
What Degree do you Have?
Your course should relate to your degree. As an example, a photography graduate could benefit from an Interior Design Course as they relate. The more your course differs from your degree, the less valuable it will be in your field.
Where do you Want to Work?
Another thing you should consider is the company you want to work for. Businesses sometimes make use of more than one skill set. As a teaching graduate, you could benefit from a Child Psychology Course. These relate and will impress any potential employers.
What Skills do You Need to Improve?
You could also study a course to improve your skills. This means that an additional qualification could be the difference between being competent or not. If there are certain parts of your job that you think will be challenging, a course could turn it into a strength.
Skills Academy is the word support in every way.
Accredited vs Provider Courses
We are licensed to offer accredited courses in partnership with some of the best institutions in South Africa. Our accredited courses are recognised locally. That means, students can study even further after completing their course. These qualifications are also recognised by recruiters and may increase your chances of getting a job.
Our non-accredited courses on the other hand are skills-based. They aim to give students with no experience an opportunity to enter the workforce. The skills you will get will help you step into a job with ease.
