Turning Your Passion Into A Paycheck

Plenty of people can relate to the experience of working a full time job as well as dabbling in a side-gig. This period in the timeline of human events will be known for the fact that, according to notable economists in the study “Survey of Working Arrangements and Attitudes,” around 10% of the U.S. workforce is working multiple jobs. And that number doesn’t look like it’s going to be decreasing any time soon as paychecks lag behind cost of living. Plenty of workers have found that their side-job is more fulfilling than their full-time career, which leads to the question: How do I turn my passion into a paycheck?

Training For What You Love

You might already be gaining part time work experience in a specific field, but if you want to turn your part time passion into a full time career, you will also want to consider adding some training as well. When it comes to training in the 21st century, online technical schools like Washington Technical Institute are the flexible solution adult learners need so that they can transition from one career to another.

When you discover that you thrive in an area outside your current career path, it’s time to make the move to an online training program that allows you to complete your coursework according to your own schedule, as quickly as you can, and with flexible payment plans and financial options. WTI offers programs in Paralegal studies, Information Technology, Criminal Justice, Medical Billing & Coding, and Pharmacy Tech, to name only a few. Because these programs are 100% online and completed according to your schedule, not the schedule of the school or instructor, adults can still attend classes even if they are busy working, raising a family, and enjoying time doing what they love.

These career training programs can provide you with a certificate from a reliable academic institution in order to back up the practical experience you already have.

Getting The Experience You Need

Sometimes, you’re looking for the experience in a career you’ve been exploring without training or experience. When you’re trying to transition to a new career, a career certificate program can help you get the part- or full-time experience you need to move forward in your goals. When you train with Washington Tech, you get to move through the coursework as quickly as you want, so many of our students are trained and working in a matter of months!

WTI’s fast-paced, focused training will help you get the experience you need to achieve your goals.

Turning Your Passion Into A Full-time Career

Once you’ve completed the training you need from one of our online programs, you’re ready to update your resumé to include your work through one of our regionally accredited career certificate programs. Since online training has become so commonplace, you can rest assured that adding your new credentials will demonstrate to potential employers that you are open to learning new skills, you’re motivated to achieve your goals, and you’re a driven individual who will get the job done.

Washington Technical Institute

Washington Technical Institute’s fully online certificates can be completed in a matter of months, with daily or bi-weekly start dates. Such flexible start dates make these programs unique and much more accessible for our students. Most of our certificates can be earned as a self-paced program, meaning that you can work at your own pace to complete your work, even finishing early if you have the time and motivation to do so. An additional benefit of WTI’s programs is that we offer affordable pricing and monthly payments to help our students leave school without debt. 

Although our goal is to help our students graduate their programs with little to no debt, we also recognize that some students might need access to a loan for their educational investment. We are excited to announce our partnerships with Meritize Financial Assistance, and Climb Credit, student lending companies focused on financing career-building programs. 

If you’re ready to enroll and start working on a plan for the personal and professional benefit of professional development, you can register for your program online through our website.
