A popular resolution in the New Year is “better my education” or “get a better job”. While most of us can’t afford (or don’t have the time) to go back to school for another degree, enrolling in a single course at a local community college (where the prices aren’t quite as steep) can be a fun, fulfilling commitment to bettering yourself and your education. Learn a language, sharpen your computer skills or take a business course. Even these small skills can help add extra edge to your resume – and will make you feel like you’re working towards something.
