Tuition reimbursement is a gigantic opportunity for adults dreaming of going back to school. Not every company offers to pay employees to get more education, so we applaud the ones that do.
Amazon.com announced its new Career Choice Program this week, and it's impressive. Amazon employees who have been with the company for at least three years are eligible for tuition reimbursement in programs that will help them get in-demand, high-paying jobs, whether or not that job is with Amazon.
The company will "pre-pay 95% of tuition and associated fees at accredited schools for courses that lead to technical and vocational certifications or associate's degrees in eligible in-demand fields, such as Engineering, Information Technology, Mechanical and Electrical Trades, Healthcare, Construction, Transportation, and Accounting."
The program does not count toward bachelor's or master's degrees.
Does your company offer tuition reimbursement? Check it out. It's a wonderful opportunity.
