School, Work, Unemployment...........!??!?!
I worked for a company for 6 years. Dec. 21st I found out they decided to downsize my department and a bunch of others to Zero. So I've joined the ranks of the unemployed. While I liked myjob okay, I've decided I want to go to school. I'm 27 and have never been to college. I want to get my AA in accounting. But I honestly have no idea what to do now. I'm eligable for unemployment, can I get it while I go to school (A local community college)? I have a mortgage and bills to pay, I can't just not have money coming in. I know there's student loans, but I really dont want to get myself into major debt for just a couple years of school. I've thought maybe if I take night courses or online school (like University of Phoenix) I might still be able to collect unemployment. Does anyone know of any other options or ideas? Please help, I'm losing sleep over this.
