I need some assistance getting started on an online degree. It was suggested I start with an associates. I am currently a temp working as a Buyer for our Purcahsing Department. One of my sups pulled me aside and told me most of the permenent positions require a degree but, if I have a plan laid out, and present it with my application, it may open some doors So, the question of where to begin. Are these online classes a pay as you go or do you need to plop down you cash in advance? The company I work for does have a reimbursment plan, though I’m not sure of the structure. I received an email saying there is counseling avaialbe here. I’m hoping to get in touch with someone that can help me ask the right questions…. Tbanks!
