Many military veterans returning home do not have a degree yet, but do have invaluable experience from their time served. How can a veteran apply what they already learned toward a degree, to gain a meaningful career for life after military service? Research from experts at Online College Plan shows that veterans may be uniquely qualified for a variety of degree types. For example, if during their service a soldier was responsible for monitoring spending, preparing a budget or analyzing financial records, a degree in accounting or finance may be a good route. Veterans should check into their education benefits to determine if they qualify for scholarships, benefits or loan programs. For more information, read the VA VAntage Point Blog.
