As a child enters his or her teenage years, thoughts begin to turn to what they will be doing after their educational time has passed and they’re into the real world of work. Should they go on to college? Should they get a job? All of these things need to be thought about and considered seriously, but here’s a take on why college would be a good thing to consider.


Education is a must if you want to earn more. It’s a given that the most educated on average earn more than the less educated. I say “on average” because you’re always going to get a few people who buck the trend. Mostly it’s multi-millionaires who brag they they’ve earned all their money after having been thrown out of school at the age of fifteen and selling apples to make ends meet. It may have worked for them, but as a rule, if you end up being thrown out of school then in all likelihood you are not going to do well in the world of work.


A college education gives you more choice. More education opens up a lot more choice because it gives you skills that can be used against a wide range of applications. If you know more about a subject or a range of subjects then you can pursue more jobs. You will also have a better chance of getting those jobs because you will be better qualified.
















What’s more, you get the option to focus on a number of specific skillsets and qualifications which could take you on to much more specific skills which again can help you towards a larger salary.

Although it may sound mercenary, salary is probably the most important aspect for many people and as we lead busier lives, earning more and more quickly is absolutely the most pressing issue for most. There’s also the added pressure of what to do with that huge student loan.

As many will attest, when you leave university, you then spend much of the next few decades paying for it and so it’s important to get into a role that means you can pay for it.

With a college background, you can get yourself into that role, earn a position that is worthy and well paid and hopefully live a much more fulfilled life doing something that you both enjoy and is ultimately profitable.
