My boss, knowing that I’m not terribly interested in remaining in my current position (I’m a Learning Support Assistant for children with autism) just offered me a deal: if I agree to remain with him for another 3 years, he’ll pay for my furthering my education.
Super awesome opportunity here, I know!
Many of the details still need to be ironed out between me and him but, the basic idea is that I still need to be able to work full-time for the next 3 years and he specifically mentioned paying for a distance-learning Master’s for myself. I have yet to bring up the possibility of bootcamps to him.
My question for you all is given the time I have, should I go for a MS or wait it out and do a bootcamp after the time I spend here?
If you’ve stuck with me this far, here’s some other constraints: I live and work in Shanghai, my Mandarin isn’t at a level where I could be taught in it, I travel to France for the summer (5 weeks) and winter (3 weeks) breaks, my current degree is a Post-Grad in Criminal Justice.
