I would be careful returning to college to improve job-related skills. I've taken several Information Technology courses that I thought would help me land a job, but employers sought verifiable current experience and minimized the value of related college work. This is especially true in Information Technology where expertise is specific and technology changes rapidly. So if I decide to return to college someday, my first priority will be to study topics that are interesting to me, then I might study topics that may boost my career. Pragmatism aside, you never know: you might meet your next friends or career opportunity while you're attending school. Learning new stuff is preferable to settling for ignorance and myopia.
