I’m In The Final Stretch…

Once again, I have slacked off from posting on this blog. I almost seem to be schizophrenic about blogging. One moment I want to be an A-list blogger with a readership of thousands and the next, I just want to make an occasional post when I have time.

I’m in my last few days of the Interdisciplinary Capstone class at the University of Phoenix. I have to take a Critical Thinking class, a CLEP exam, and a DANTES exam, and I will finally have my Bachelor’s Degree. I’m thinking about celebrating by looking for a new job. I’m actually sort of torn about that. I currently work with the best group of people I have ever had the pleasure of working with, but the work itself is less than challenging and exciting. I’m able to manage my own priorities and mostly set my own schedule. I rarely ask for time off anymore; I just take time. As long as my work gets delivered on time and I account for 80 hours in two weeks, I’m left alone. I like it that way however; I have more than  30 years left in the workforce and the time has come to think about the next step in my career. I’ve been monitoring positions on Career Builder lately, and I believe with my degree and experience, I can easily get an engineering position. In my current job, I’m only NOT an engineer in name only if that makes any sense. In other words, if I had been hired into this position with a degree, I would have been classified as an engineer.

I have considered making an offer to any readers or anyone who happens to stop by with general questions about the University of Phoenix. If you have a general question you would like to ask, feel free to email me: emuelle1 at gmail dot com. My specific experience is with the IT program through FlexNet. My next and final class will be onground, and I have not taken any purely online classes. I also have not taken any general ed classes through UOP. If you do have a specific question I will do my best to answer off the top of my head, but I may have to reply "I don’t know". When I was looking for information on UOP to decide whether or not to choose them, I found very little. No bloggers at the time had posted anything about the school, so I would like to do whatever small part I can to help others make a decision about higher education.
