If you’ve got a full-time job or other responsibilities, online classes can help you get your education on your schedule. Here are five things you can do to help make yourself more successful
- Choose a good school. Find a school with a good reputation, like Everest. It’ll help you in the long run.
- Show up. While there’s no classroom, it’s still important to participate in discussions online or participate in a work group.
- Learn your online tools. Before classes even start, learn how to use your online tools. That’s everything from what buttons to click to what’s available to you online.
- Use a newer computer. Technical problems can throw a wrench into an online education. Don’t let an old computer hold you back, and make sure you install anti-virus software to keep things running smoothly.
- Get to know your teachers and peers. Create an online profile with a picture of yourself and connect with your instructors and fellow students online or over email.

It’s an official title to an unpaid job that he’s been doing for years. His words can be seen etched in stone in front of the Hillsborough County Courthouse and at Chillura Park in downtown Tampa. And he’s written inaugural poems for three Tampa mayors, as well as for former governor Charlie Crist.
Tokley compares being a poet to being a sanitation worker, saying, “We rummage through the garbage of yesterday and look through the wastebaskets of history and we pull out things and write poems about it.”
When he’s not writing poems, Tokley teaches English at Everest University in Brandon.

Four things to remember when applying for a job online
A large number of resumes are automatically disqualified for failing to send it to the correct e-mail address. Double-check the email address and the title of the person you’re writing to. Make sure your job application includes the details the ad or listing requested: experience, salary requirements, etc.
Send a Cover Letter
A cover letter attached to your job application can immediately place strong emphasis on the qualities that make you valuable to the company.
If your resume or cover letter has a spelling or grammatical error, it won’t make it past the inbox and may likely end up immediately in the trash. Employers will worry that you won’t be detail-oriented in your job.
Use a Professional Email Address
Use an email address that includes your name or part of your name vs. something like email@example.com — you want to be taken seriously.
This approach, coupled with solid experience and career-related education, can make all the difference in your job search.
