As for the way to go in the company nobody will dispute the effort and it will get you looked at. I would say I passed by others with the paper proof of exp. of education.

  • Have you had any informational interviews with people currently working in your chosen field? This is the best way to learn if this is the right career for you.
    I am not sure what you mean by mature, but my sister was 38 when she completed her Masters and I am considering restarting a Masters program next year, just after I turn a number that I can bring myself to mention that rhymes with shifty.
    Just make sure that you are attending a for-profit school; they exist, by law, to make money for their shareholders/owners, education is not their priority. Additionally, you may find that your credit hours won't transfer to another school. Your local community college is the best option for a returning student.
