Should You Go To College, Is It Worth It? – Infographic

With more and more of the population earning advanced degrees, you should think about ways to utilize your college degree choice to help you stand out from the crowd. Is your degree going to help you learn skills that are valued in tomorrow’s economy? America needs nurses, physician’s assistance, engineers, problem solvers, global thinkers, entrepreneur more than lawyers and art history majors. Labor markets are increasingly global. You will want to think about jobs where you compete with others based on knowledge skills rather than physical skills that can be done cheaper elsewhere. Think ahead about how your degree will make you valuable to the future economy. Is your field going to be reduced to computer algorithms, automated robotics, or an outsource workforce? If so, you may find it harder to win desired positions throughout your career.

75% of Americans think college is too expensive. While scholarships, grants, and loans make it possible for millions, your loans may become too much for you to handle if you struggle finding a job coming out of college. Thinking about your desired college’s reputation, the value of the specific degree you are planning on starting, and the job opportunities that are going to exist around that major in the future will help reduce the chances of a loan default.

Your goals with going to college can be personal development, learning unique and desirable skills, networking, and yes even earning that diploma required for many higher paying jobs. This will help make a college education worth it. We wish you good luck on this journey.
