So even though times are difficult for many unemployed workers it is still important to continue your education. Many Off and Online Universities can now help you during a career transition with so many different business related career options.
But to get into these graduate schools you need to first take the GMAT course. As I have personally experienced with my 23 year old son it requires outside help which could include tutoring or online study tools. The beauty of today's online courses is that you can take a course anywhere right in your living room.
Now it is so simple to take an online class at your pace while you continue to look for a new job. Of course you can may even be able to apply for Federal Aid to help subsidize your new career at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/.
Times may be tough for many skilled workers but it is a your time to begin to explore your possibilities.
