Default ITT Tech

I have been considering changing fields and getting some more education. I also have to get back to working for a living while I do it. I've been looking into ITT Tech and was wondering if anyone had any experience or knowledge about this school or any like it and what you think about this type of education, especially the likelihood of gaining employment while taking classes and after graduation.

I looked into ITT Tech a while back. I think it depends on what you're trying to go for, I was able to get the same degree from a school with a good reputation for 1/3 of the cost. I'm finishing up a BS in Accounting.

I have a job now, while I go to school, but called several accounting/tax/payroll firms and asked if they had any reservations hiring out of my school, they all said it was a good program.

The best thing I found with ITT was they offer employment services, and have a large pool of companies that work with them. However, that wasn't worth an extra $40k for me.

I think it does depend on what you are looking to do. If I was going to go there, I'd ask if you could speak with a few former graduates.

I work in IT and in my company, ITT tech and similar schools seem ok for some of the grunt jobs but if it is the school for your highest level of education, you seem to be stuck. I had a coworker who actually left our company because he felt he couldn't advance in the company and he was right.

I graduated from ITT a little over 10 years ago. I got my associates degree in computer aided drafting/design. I got a good job out of it, but the quality of education was definitely not worth the money I paid.

Na, I got me a young'un. He's only 39. Doesn't qualify me for "cougar" status. But, dayum, he is freakin' hawt!!! Although, he does have a little more gray hair than I do.

Oh, and BTW, he's British too. I just love that sweet little accent.

I believe you are in or near Annapolis? Have you looked at Anne Arundel community college or University of Maryland University college? Both of those seem to be in/near Annapolis.

I would stick with the community colleges and Unis. This was my last thought on this type of situation, but, over the last year I've looked into several and it just seems like most of them are either scams or, like Nelie said earlier, only good for getting you in, then you're stuck as a grunt. Whatever you do, don't go for one of those "Medical Transcription" type courses. They don't pay squat and there aren't many jobs anyways. Outsourcing doncha know. Check out Indeed.com when trying to decide on a field of study. Lots of real life people telling it like it really is.

I've looked at AACC for floral design. I'm just a little unsure about it.
