Employees: How to get back to school

Let’s say you’ve been working for 10 or 20 years, and you’ve decided it’s time to go back to school to further your education or career. Employee Career Services is offering a workshop, Back to the Books: How to be a Successful Student, for the first time July 31 to help employees get prepared. The office is looking for input from interested U.Va. workers to make sure they address as many questions as possible.

The workshop will cover how to: decide what programs and/or courses to take, handle placement tests, develop personal support networks and discuss plans and schedules with supervisors. You’ll also learn about U.Va.’s educational benefits.

Interested individuals who have finished high school or the equivalent are encouraged to send questions or topics to Emily Bardeen at ebardeen@virginia.edu. She also welcomes feedback from employees who have already taken this leap and might have advice to share with others.
