Getting your master’s degree is another opportunity for you to become a step above the rest for any future career opportunities and would not be a waste of time! However it is a lot of work, so be sure it is something that you really would like to do, and have the time and energy to devote to it.
As money can be an issue, be sure to ask potential employers if they have any tuition assistance programs. Many companies will help you pay for an advanced degree, and some may even pay for all of it. Working while you get your degree can be a lot to take on, but pairing real-world experience while going through your master’s will give you more to discuss in the classroom.
