Education Connection

Gear up and find the right school.

BACKGROUND
Education Connection has positioned itself as one of the first supplies a student will need before heading in to school. Whether you're pursuing higher education for the first time or returning after many years in the work force, selecting the right degree program and even the place to earn that degree can be overwhelming. There are so many choices, and it today's increasingly digital world, even more decisions about campus-based versus online classrooms.

The site is simple to use and makes such a major decision a little easier by doing some of the sorting for you. Provide Education Connection with your educational background, contact information, degree of interest and the type of classroom you'd like to attend. You'll receive a follow-up email with the top three school/degree program matches.

If you're looking for a change in career or not quite sure where you're headed, Education Connection can also match you to a school and degree program based on your unique personality. They provide a brief four-question survey to determine your personality and you provide educational background and goals. You're then presented a list of possible career paths (with corresponding average annual salary) that typically suit your personality. You can then select the careers that most interest you and Education Connection will email possible school matches.

Education Connection "connected" me to the broad range of Universities and their programs. It made it easier for me. Does anyone else agree? posted Jul 14th, 2008 12:51 pm
