I'm finishing school this year and I've got to decide what I'm gonna do.
I want to be a physical trainer/massage therapist, both of those require no college so I can take courses online or at a specific school for them, I have Scholarships so I can go to my towns community college for free so I've been trying to figure out what I want to take.
I could take classes for an associates degree in health which would give me a better resume with trainer/massage or welding classes for an associates in applied sciences for a guaranteed back up career, I might be able to take both but I don't know yet I'm going tomorrow to talk to an counselor to find out.
My main thing is with welding I'd have time for a job but with the full time course of the associates health I don't think I would have time for a job, so it's down to should I take the course that gives a better background for the trainer/massage which might make getting a job in that field easier or the course that give's me a skill set so I can basically have a job set up once I finish if I so choose plus that course lets me have a job on the side so I can save up and take the online courses I want? which is the smarter move? if I can do both I might go with that but if not I'd really rather not waste 2 years when it's not needed and I could be doing something that amounts to more.
