Question
My boyfriend recently accepted a raise and new position that starts June 1st. This position requires us to move from Missouri to California. We have the cities in mind we plan to move to. My issue is I'm still in school and I intend on finishing my degree. There are not any schools close to where we are moving that offer the degree program I'm interested in. Plus the cost of out-of-state tuition is so expensive I wouldn't be able to afford it. I was considering online school instead of taking a year off until I am a resident and qualify for in-state tuition. So my question is how do employers view people with online degrees? I don't want to get a degree online and still not be able to get a job because  employers prefer someone with a degree from an institution. I plan on getting my associates online and then my bachelors from a university. Does that make a difference? I currently work in retail and want to make a career out of it. I don't know if my intended career field makes a difference as far as employment.
