High school graduates have a big decision to make when they graduate high school. What should they do? Many choose to go to a college or otherwise continue their education. Is it necessary to continue education after high school? In most cases, the answer is yes.
In today’s difficult job market, many jobs require you to have some education after high school. They may require a two or four year college degree. You might not even be able to apply to a job because you will not even be considered.
Even jobs and careers that do not require a college degree may still be very difficult to get when you do not have an advanced degree. The work world is extremely competitive right now. Oftentimes people who have far more than the minimum qualifications apply for inferior jobs. If employers have people available to them who have college degrees then they might not even consider people with lower degrees.
You can learn a lot from continuing education. You can become much more educated in the field of your choice.
Continuing education also provides a great experience. Many people find that it is the best time of their lives. Especially if you go away for college you may enjoy a unique once in a lifetime experience. You can make friends that will last forever.
Continuing education helps you figure out what you want to do with your life. You can try out the different fields and get a better idea of where you really want to go.
You may not think that you need college for what you want to do, but plans and decisions change. You never know what you might want to do later in your life, and a college degree may be necessary for that.
Many people are very anxious to get a job and start earning money. This can be tempting, but remember that you will probably earn more money if you go to college first and then get a job.
It can be very difficult to go back to school later in life. You should not skip it with the excuse that you can just easily do it later. You might end up with a job and not be in the financial position to go back to school later. You may get a family and just never have the opportunity to devote full time to school again. If you think that you might want to go to school, then you should take advantage of this time that you can do it.
There are many reasons to continue education after high school. Everyone should do it if they can.
