Why College Is Really Worth It

Planning for college sometimes can seem endless and a big drain on your time. But here are four quick reasons why college is really worth it:

Higher Salary

Every bit of education you get after high school increases the chances you’ll earn good pay. Most college graduates earn a lot more money during their working years than people who stop their education at high school.

Job Security

The more education you get, the more likely it is you will always have a job. According to one estimate, by the year 2028 there will be 19 million more jobs for educated workers than there are qualified people to fill them.

It’s Required

Continuing education after high school is much more important for your generation than it was for your parents’ generation. Today, most good jobs require more than a high school diploma. Businesses want to hire people who know how to think and solve problems.

It Opens Doors

Education beyond high school gives you a lot of other benefits, including meeting new people, taking part in new opportunities to explore your interests and experiencing success. For more online resources on college prep, check out Links2GO.
