Have you ever done something that you’ve been pressured to do? Most of today’s high school seniors feel pressured to go to college because of how society thinks that someone without a college education is a failure and will be unsuccessful in life. Although college can help you be really successful in your life.
Like I mentioned before, college can be really helpful with making your life successful, in the article “Actually, College is Very Much Worth It” it states, “According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2010, the median weekly earnings for someone with some college but no degree were $712, compared to $1038 for a college graduate. That’s almost $17,000 over the course of a year”. Though college is not necessary to have a good job. There are many jobs that don’t require a college education and that pays well. Lastly, we need people to work jobs that don’t involve a college education. In the article, “Why College Isn’t (And Shouldn’t Have to Be) For Everyone” it explains how in the future we’ll need many technicians who can install, service, and repair any machinery that is in hospitals, offices and factories.
Although college is still a great way to ensure that your career is a successful one. It can increase your salary and decrease the percentage of you being unemployed. But there isn’t a guarantee that you’ll actually get a job because of all of the competition that there is.
In conclusion, there are some benefits of going to college, but sometimes going to college may have not been worth it at all. There’s a lot of competition and there are jobs that pay well and don’t require a college education, but it can also really help you out a lot.
