The need to further your education in today’s economy is extremely important. I recently read an article that pointed out that 20 or 30 years ago the need for a college education was not really necessary because there were many labor jobs available that paid a good wage. Unfortunately, finding a job today is very difficult. A person today who does not attend college is really a lot like dropping out of high school in the 70′s and 80′s. The first thing a potential employer will be looking at on your resume is your education levels. Listing only a high school diploma or GED is obviously not as impressive to them as a college degree and if there is someone else applying for the same job the person with the college degree will get the job almost every time.
As a lot of people are, I’m sure you are working in a job you are not happy in and you would like to further your education, but your schedule just does not allow for you to take the time to go to school. There are so many options available that will make the decision of applying to school so much easier. Before you decide that schooling won’t work with your schedule you should go into a school you are interested in studying at and see what schedule options they have. You may be pleasantly surprised by the day and evening class schedules they have available. Another option you could consider is studying online. Online classes allow you to study on your own time, in your own home and when it is convenient for you.
If you still don’t think an education is important or something you want to consider I urge you to seriously reconsider the decision of applying to school. An education will allow you to make more money than someone who does not, and also allows you to work in the career you love which is priceless. Another benefit of earning a degree is the self-satisfaction you will gain and pride in yourself for accomplishing such a great goal.
Education is a great opportunity that you should most definitely take advantage of if you want to have a successful and happy future. I have heard and read about so many benefits of earning a degree but have never heard a negative thing about it because furthering your degree is always a good decision, and always the right path to take. If you have questions I urge you to contact a school in your area to get started improving your future today.
