Tired of doing the same job day in and day out? Try these tips for developing career goals and meeting them.
According to recent research, the average American will change careers at least five times. Blue collar or white collar worker, there are many things you can do to get a better job or earn more money. Rather than move from one dead-end job to another, here are some ideas for making preparations to advance your career to a professional level.

1. Take vocational classes, earn a professional certificate, or consider going to college for a two-year or four-year degree. Sometimes taking just one class, like math or accounting, can be enough to move you from the factory floor to the office area, especially if you have been with the company for a while and understand its workings. On the other hand, a manual laborer may decide to study for an electrician’s license, while a union-registered pipe fitter might enroll in computer classes. Wherever you’re at in a job, you can always move up. Education assistance may be available in the form of grants or loans for those on limited incomes, unemployment, or disability claims. Check with the financial aid office of your local college campus.
