Hey everyone! Hope you are all staying warm out there.
I just finished up an assignment for the online college I attend. I real close to getting my Bachelor’s in Information Technology. Anyone else use online college to get their degree? And, did you do any school work while at the station?
I know in my department there have been a couple that have. Not all online but were able to attend class and such. I think the other was strictly online. How did your bosses handle you doing it at work?
I was at a not so busy station and I would do a lot of my studies while on duty. I had my own little desk and we have a separate internet connection. Just happens that the Chief’s office was at the same station. Now my desk sat in a small room that staff and other firefighters were always walking past me. No one really has said anything directly to me, but through different channels I get the hunch that some didn’t like the amount of time I spent on the computer.
Now I won’t sit here and tell you every waking moment was study time, but lot of it was. And because no one just asks what you’re doing, you get labeled. Maybe if someone would just ask they would know that I go to an online college, for IT. It happens on the computer!
Can anyone else relate? You picking up what I’m putting down? Be safe !
