You know the old cliche: if you think education is expensive, try ignorance.<br />
Education is always worth it. Always worth the time and effort. It grows you in unique ways, that give you a decided advantage over those without. It's not just about the ticket and job access, though that's important of course. It's about what it teaches you through the process of learning, of contributing with others to a set of academic ideas. It's about the principles of clear thinking and understanding, of interpreting evidence, of dealing with issues rationally and ob<x>jectively. Those are sustaining skills for 21 century, not just for the gaining of some certificate.
It really just depends on what you studied and where you live and how high the demand for people in your field is. Medical people are in pretty high demand, usually. But more "frivolous" fields, like design, drama, fine arts, liberal arts, etc. are harder to find positions in after graduation. <br />
I know lots of people with degrees who work at Walmart or McDonalds, which is really sad.
It could be, in some situations, But many graduate owing $100,000.00. And end up working for someone who went to work right out of high school,and has worked there way up.
Not neccessarily, depends on your major.
I believe they taught the difference between there, their and they're in grade school, which was free.
We can't all be smart like you,
It must be hard for a person of your Intelligence to
Torerate the Juvenile mistakes of everyday People.Like me. I not being Paid to answer questions, If you want proper spelling and grammer you better find a more Intellictual sight.
Yes it IS!! You may have to do alot now, but, IT'S THE REST OF UR LIFE WE R TALKING ABOUT! You can make more money the more you know.
Nursing will definitely get you a job, but doctors treat you like dogs--let's face it, you are there to literally do all the dirty work. So, I'd either specialize (private duty nurse, OR nurse, ER nurse, etc.), or go for physician's assistant, which pays better and doesn't take that much more time to achieve. Go for it and good luck.
Simple but often ignored truth about work: If you can do something that stimulates you, something that's hard (a specialty), and do that something very well, you'll always be in demand (the Golden child), and people will always be nice to you (really makes work life better). For me, it's professional editing, academic / research writing, and teaching writing. People hate doing those things and are generally bad at them, therefore I can do something that most cannot--even really well educated people. Makes me valuable.
Yes. Without a doubt, higher ed is worth it.
yea it make best you been life god walk with you all way
It really and truly depends on what you go to school for. You can't get a degree in philosophy and then get a decent job. You need to be practical. You may want to major in painting, but the odds are you won't become a famous artist or go into performing arts, another field that very few are lucky at. Really look at what jobs are in demand. Nursing is huge right now. If I could stand the sight of blood, I'd go back to school for it. As it is, I have a degree in English, what the hell was I thinking?
Well, you'll have your pick of jobs, thats for sure.
It is worthed for the one's who has brains for school
For me? absolutely...it is going to get me where I want to be in my career. So yes it is worth it
going to school to work in forensics
Thank you!! :-)
Of course it is..it's your future. You cannot get anywhere without a degree. period.
Education is always worth time and effort as it drastically improves the quality of your life.
Education and college however, are not the same thing.
Your whole life everyone tells you that people who dont go to colledge are failures and will spend the rest of their lives working at Mcdonalds or in prison, but thats simply not true.
You don't have to go to colledge to be successful.
Successful, smart people are people who educate themselves. you can do it through school but thats not the only route.
Spending the rest of your life paying for a title doesn't make you intelligent
Up to you. I learned nothing in school and had to re-learn everything once I got out. But I'd go back if I can only find a way.
