Developing Skills- Go for targeted professional development courses and micro mastery

Going back to graduate school shouldn’t be your default option. If it’s not mandatory for your chosen field, think hard about whether the debt and time out of the workforce is worth it. The most prestigious schools have powerful brand value and alumni networks that can turbocharge your career, but that’s not the case for most programs. Ask yourself if there are other, cheaper ways you can obtain the knowledge you want.
