Of course, opportunities are everywhere and there are plenty of happy, well-off people in the world who have/haven’t gone to college. However, ones agenda to pursue a higher education is surely to differ from the next.

Choosing your career, making your mark, finding your purpose The doctor heals so that we may enjoy another day with our loved ones, a barista provides fresh coffee every morning for the busy people, a police officer protects the innocent whom make the community a home, the bus driver drives citizens to their destinations safetly, the janitor protects our health, and the teacher inspires the next generation. Each occupation plays an important role in serving communities. These jobs should be filled by those who will make for a happier and healthier community. While everyone has their personal reasonings to enroll in a college degree program, you should consider what will ultimately allow you to work in an environment that you are passionate being a part of and where you can best make the world a better place.

How do I pick the right College Degree Program? College requires money, years of study, and an honest effort that you could easily spend anywhere else. Therefore, it is an investment and should be treated/planned as such. Investments however, can have both positive and negative impacts on your future.

“What exactly do I receive from college?”

College (n.) is an educational institution or establishment, providing higher education or specialized professional or vocational training. When you enroll into a college’s degree program, you are purchasing ahigher education or specialized professional or vocational training Think of educational training as a tactical detour in your journey rather than the destination. We should go to college to add relevant value to our brain , or to fill a relevant requirement . It’s important to note that the act of earning a degree does not necessarily guarantee a job, or change the state of the world’s occupation demands or opportunities. Consider… Will there be work opportunities near my place of living? Will the job I’m seeking become obsolete or undergo significant change within the timeframe of my expected employment? You must do your due diligence to understand where the opportunities are in your industry, as well as the costs and risks. This investment should assist you in reaching your goals, rather than simply take you to them.

Asset or Liability? All of our purchases can be divided into two categories, Asset and Liability. Simply put, an asset makes money and a liability takes money. So where does that leave college? That all depends on your personal trajectory and goals. Here are some examples of how college could be an Asset or Liability… When College is an Asset 📈 Provides a valuable skill or useful experience The degree program is connected to industries that are showing longevity in job opportunities (remotely, where you plan to live)

The degree program is connected to opportunities that generate an average yearly income that will cover your projected expenses You are in a place mentally/financially to give honest effort when you are studying to ensure you get the greatest value back on your return

When College is a Liability 📉 Provides invaluable knowledge that is ineffective The degree program is connected to jobs facing endangerment, extinction, or show signs of decline in job opportunity The degree program is connected to careers that generate a yearly income that will not support your projected expenses You are not yet in a place mentally/financially to give honest effort when you are studying and are unable to utilize your investment fully

Deciding which degree program is a decision that should be made with careful consideration. Determine what you must do to remain committed to your studies, how earning the knowledge or training will advance your career, and how you plan on repaying any occurred debt. What you choose to do with your education is ultimately at your own discretion.
