5 Tips for Being a Better Online Student as You Earn Your Information Technology Degree

Posted on

By earning an associate’s degree in information technology, you open up a door to a whole new world of career opportunities. It may seem far away, but getting this degree is more attainable than you realize. Through Antonelli College you can earn your information technology degree online for the utmost convenience. Study and learn around your job and family commitments. Learning online isn’t any easier than learning in a classroom; it’s just more flexible. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your online education:

 

1.     Interact with instructors and students. Being an online student feels a little isolating. In a classroom you benefit from the back-and-forth with your instructor and your fellow students. You can ask questions in real time and learn from each other. When learning online, it can be easy to sink back and never interact. Make a point to get involved through forums, emails, and any other interactive features offered.

2.     Practice your new tech skills. As a student of information technology, it may seem that learning online is ideal. On the other hand, when you’re in a real-time computer lab, you have an instructor pushing you to try assignments and practice. In your online course, you’re more on your own. Make sure you take the time to practice the new skills you’re learning so you will be successful in your new IT career.

3.     Practice good time management. Online learning is a great way to get an education when you have other responsibilities that take up your time. With this flexibility, though, comes even more responsibility. To make sure you can get it all done and to be successful in your coursework, you need to be able to manage your time well. Keep a detailed calendar and plan out your days and weeks to ensure you have time for everything.

4.     Find a good study environment. Without a classroom you have to find just the right place to learn and study. This is crucial to being able to focus and learn. Find a quiet spot that allows you to shut out distractions during your dedicated study time. If you don’t have a separate room to shut the door on distractions, consider getting noise-cancelling headphones to help you focus.

5.     Strike a balance. You are getting an online education most likely because you have family or work obligations, or both, that prevent you from participating in a traditional classroom. To succeed you need to find a balance between all your responsibilities. Staying organized and using good time management helps. Make sure your family knows that you have certain times when you have to be studying and ask them to respect that.

 

Once you earn your Associate of Applied Business in Information Technology degree from Antonelli, you won’t regret the effort you had to put into it. An online program like this gives you flexibility and opens up new opportunities, but it isn’t always easy. With these tips and your family’s encouragement, you can earn your degree and find yourself with a great new career.

3 Common Myths about Working in Hospitality

Posted on

Careers in hospitality are hot right now, and you can be a part of it with the right education. An Associate of Applied Business in Hospitality Management from Antonelli College is all you need to get your foot in the door. The types of careers available to you with this degree are varied and lucrative. Get out of the spinning wheel that is your current dead-end job and find a real career in this people-oriented field. If you have never considered hospitality before, maybe you believed some of the common myths about the industry. Here are three of the big ones and the reasons they shouldn’t prevent you from joining the hospitality work force:

 

1.     Hospitality workers are maids. Many people have this thought and similar ones when thinking about the field of hospitality. Sure, there are plenty of maids, bellhops, servers, and other workers in the industry that have no formal training, but there are many more great opportunities for people with the right qualifications. With a degree in hospitality management you can bypass those low-paying hospitality jobs and start your career off as a hotel or restaurant manager, conference center event planner, wine steward, bar manager or caterer. These positions are much more interesting and pay better than what you might expect for the typical hospitality jobs.

2.     Hospitality jobs require long hours. If you’re looking for a new career, chances are you want something that will let you spend more time with your family. Careers in hospitality have a lot of variety when it comes to working hours, and in fact, many of the positions can be part time. If you want to work less and still earn a decent income, these kinds of part time jobs can be a great choice. And because this is a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week industry, you can also choose a career in hospitality that works around your schedule. Night shifts, day shifts, and weekends are all possible.

3.     Only women work hospitality. Don’t let the fact that you think this is a career for women hold you back from a great job in hospitality. It’s true that many people consider this a caring type of industry, best suited for women, but there are plenty of men working in hospitality and enjoying it. Along with the skills you learn by earning a hospitality degree, you need to enjoy working with people, whether you are a man or a woman. All kinds of people find success in this career.

 

Now that you know a little bit more about this industry, it’s time to seriously consider your future career. If you enjoy helping people, you want to be able to choose your working hours and you want a new challenge, hospitality could be for you. Start working toward your degree from Antonelli College and you can have your new career in no time.

4 Reasons Everyone Needs a Financial Management Professional

Posted on

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs for financial managers continue to grow at a quick pace and you can get in on this exciting field with a degree from Antonelli College. With the right skills you can easily find a job in a variety of settings, helping people and businesses with accounting, bookkeeping, tax preparation and more. Here are the top four reasons this is a stable career that will always be in demand:

 

1.     Individuals don’t have financial expertise. This is one reason you’ll need to go to Antonelli for a degree if you want to work in finance. The skills needed to make smart money decisions aren’t skills that everyone has. This is why people will always need financial managers. You can be the person who brings much-needed expertise to help an individual or a company make better financial choices and to meet money goals.

2.     Everyone needs to plan for the future. Planning for the future is important for everyone, from all walks of life. Even those who don’t make a lot of money, future financial planning is the key to being able to retire and live comfortably later in life. Most people aren’t great at investing and saving, which is why they need people like you, people trained in financial management, to help them figure out how to save enough money for retirement and for unexpected events later in life.

3.     Even smart people have money problems. Even clever people struggle with money management and that’s because they don’t have the training to make the best money decisions. This means that everyone runs into financial problems at some point in their lives, and when they do, they turn to financial management professionals to find a solution. You could be that person who helps people get through money struggles.

4.     All businesses need financial management professionals. It isn’t just individuals who need financial professionals. Businesses can’t run without someone watching their money and doing so requires special skills. With the right training, you could become a valuable asset to any company. All businesses need people who can handle payroll, do tax preparation, complete the bookkeeping and manage accounts, not to mention find ways to save money and maximize profits. All of this comes down to the financial professionals, who are always in demand.

 

Everyone, from individuals to families to businesses small and large, need financial professionals to plan, save, and fix problems. With an associate of applied business degree in financial management from Antonelli College you could be that in-demand professional.

The Top 10 Marketing Skills

Posted on

Certain things never change. Marketing will always be about creating a relationship with customers. But the methods have changed dramatically. If you’re interested in a marketing career, figuring out what you need to know can be tough. With this in mind, here are the marketing skills you need to get yourself hired. (Most of which, by the way, you can acquire by getting a Marketing and Social Media Degree from Antonelli College.)

 

1.    Social media skills. It’s the first thing that comes to mind when people talk about marketing. The most successful marketers know how to use each social media outlet to its best advantage. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram — they’re all huge. But each one needs a different approach for communicating a message that will stay true to the brand that is being represented.

 

2.    Interpersonal skills. Some people prefer to work in isolation. That doesn’t work for marketers. You need good oral communication skills and emotional intelligence in order to build relationships with colleagues and clients. These skills can help you understand your audience as well — what is a demographic but a collection of individuals?

 

3.    Writing skills. Of course social media is a huge part of marketing. But people tend to forget how much of it involves writing. Can you create compelling content for Facebook? Can you get a message across in 140 characters? Plus you’re going to be writing proposals, e-mailing clients—you’d better be able to communicate your ideas clearly and concisely.

 

4.    Creativity. People tend to think of this more as a quality than a skill, but creativity can definitely be developed. It takes practice to get yourself into the frame of mind to let things happen, and you have to be comfortable sharing those ideas. Not feeling too creative? Spend ten minutes every morning free-writing.

 

5.    Marketing Fundamentals. Marketing is a lot more than just tweeting about a product. The best marketers have a solid foundation in the basics. They know how to find their target audience, create a marketing campaign and quantify the results. Without these skills, everything else won’t get you very far.

 

6.    Branding. This is a job in and of itself. Nevertheless a well rounded marketer knows how to find the essence of a brand and craft its message. It’s just as important to understand what’s off-brand.

 

7.    Curiosity. Okay, maybe this is more of a quality than a skill. But without it, you’ll have a difficult time succeeding in marketing. The best marketers have their eyes open to new experiences and new people. When you’re always learning about the world, it often provides insight that you can bring to your work. And it makes life more interesting.

 

8.    Technical skills. Marketers should have some technical proficiency. For example, some basic coding, Photoshop and design skills are crucial right and now and may only become more important.

 

9.    Offline marketing skills. Social media dominates the marketing landscape. To the point where so many other methods are ignored. Event marketing, direct mail, sponsorship—the real marketers know how to communicate a message offline.

 

10.  Online advertising. We’re going to see more marketing campaigns turning to Facebook and Google Ads. First of all, they’re relatively inexpensive. And second, they can be an amazingly precise way to track the success of your message.

The Importance of Financial Management in Today’s Economy

Posted on

By earning an Associate’s Degree in Financial Management from Antonelli College you will become an active and important part of the modern economy. No business functioning today can be successful without workers who have the skills to manage money, do the accounting and bookkeeping, collect bills, and run payroll. Managing finances is so important to businesses today, which means that you have a chance to work toward a stable and rewarding career in this field.

 

There is no Business without Financial Management

Businesses generate money; they pay bills for materials; they pay employees; they earn money by selling products or services. Without someone to manage the money coming in and going out, a business can’t exist. Entrepreneurship and small businesses are on the rise in today’s economy and that means that more positions for financial managers will continue to become available. With the skills you learn earning a degree in the subject you can become this crucial cog in just about any business.

 

Businesses Need Cost Analysis

If the finances of a business aren’t managed well it could be leaking money. Every company needs someone skilled in accounting and bookkeeping, not just to keep the books, but to look at the finances with a critical eye. A good financial manager can study each line item and decide where money could be saved or more should be spent. The same people who develop and sell products and services for a business don’t necessarily have the time or the knowledge to do this kind of financial work, which is why a good financial manager is so important.

 

Businesses Have to Manage Payroll

Even small businesses, with only a handful of employees need to devote time to payroll. For larger companies, paying employees can easily get out of control without good management. All businesses need someone to handle payroll. With your degree in financial management you could work for a small- or medium-sized business as a payroll manager, or you could work for a payroll company handling the payroll accounts for any number of larger businesses.

 

Smart Businesses Plan for Taxes

The tax code is more complicated than ever, and if you understand accounting you can play an important role in any business. Planning for taxes involves being able to pay quarterly estimated taxes, deciding when the best time to make big purchases is, and trying to maximize deductions. Even for a small business, taxes are complex and making sure they get paid and that money isn’t wasted is crucial for the success of a company of any size.

 

The importance of financial management for any business can’t be overstated. Without managing the money, no company can be successful. When you study at Antonelli College and earn a degree in financial management, you make yourself invaluable to a number of employers. You can earn your degree with a flexible schedule while taking care of family responsibilities and put yourself on a path to a great and stable career in a field that will always be open to skilled and talented workers.
