With the increasing cost of college tuition, student loan debt, job scarcity, and opportunities for entrepreneurship online, is it any wonder that grads are wondering: “was getting my degree worthwhile?”
Well, that’s up to you do to decide.
Most of the people during their college time think, after having a great degree they will live happily for ever.
It doesn’t work in real life.
The real struggle starts just after your college.
Just a college degree is not enough to lead a life as you have dreamt of during your college life.
It’s not your fault.
You are getting taught by the people who don’t practice such skills.
If someone is teaching you engineering, that doesn't make that person an engineer. After all, he is a teacher.
You need life skills.
You need side hustles.
You need to know how to deal with people.
ecommerce , etc
are booming and this is the right time to jump in and learn these skills, remember we should prefer to do the things the world need.
to add values in your life and as well for other, you must allow yourself to break the barrier of the comfortable nuances.
degree is not enough it will fade away , and the world will become hungry of skills that can leverage the outcome and effectivity.
Your MBA degree will never teach you , how to face the world, how to deal with people, how to make money on internet, how to find clients for freelancing, even how to write on wrytin.
you should teach yourself the skills your are interested in .
But, not after college.
But when you are in college.
People seem to think that the simple act of attending college makes you more innovative and creative. That’s simply not true.
Creativity and innovation don’t come from what people teach you: new ideas come from your personal experiences, and your interaction with your environment.
What used to be a guarantee of safety and stability has recently turned into an exercise in musical chairs. There aren’t enough jobs for everyone, and you find yourself scrambling to not be the odd man out.
According to aCNN article, less than half of college graduates under the age of 25 are working at a job that requires a college degree. The same article mentions a 2012 study from Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce titled “Hard Times: Not All College Majors are Created Equal,” showing thatbachelor degree grads have.
In 1970, only26% of middle-class workershad education beyond high school. Today, almost60% of all jobs in the US require a higher education. Your new bachelor’s degree is becoming increasingly worthless as more and more people graduate from college, as jobs that used to need only a bachelor’s degree nowprefermaster’s degrees.
If the excess of bachelor’s degrees wasn’t enough, now we have an increase in master’s degree students who have decided to stay in school to wait out the recession: not only have you gone to school to earn a commodity, it’s now a sub-standard commodity.
It’s only a matter of time until you’ll need a bachelor’s degree and a certification to mow lawns—there go all the summer jobs for kids.
On average, the cost for one year of attendance at four-year public college or university costs40% of a family’s income, and on average, approximately 40% of students leave school with a debt of $22,000. If you’re from a family that earns between $40k and $50k, that number jumps to $28,000.
Middle-class families will have more debt from student loans than their upper-class peers, who can pay for their education outright, and their lower class peers, who often qualify for grants and financial assistance. You might even end up being the one paying $1,000 a month for 20 years just for four years of school.
Guys, you have to have something within you, some skills that will make you different from others.
Doing a degree is just not enough.
