Am I guaranteed employment if I
graduate from college?
Of course, you aren’t. Some job positions do not require only a college degree. They also want a specialization degree, so be careful with your major selection. It is hard to wrap one’s mind around this fact, but some jobs that bring good income do not even require any degree.
You need to think about your retirement first of all. To get sufficient retirement funds, you have to become a valuable specialist for a company, earn enough to save up, or have something valuable to rent out. If you have three jobs at the same time in order to survive, this is not going to happen.
It really depends on your major. My acquaintances with Linguistics or Political Science degrees mostly stay jobless or work in a different field. My daughter and I are both engineers and are never short on job options.
So choose your major with great attention!
No, there are plenty of factors that influence your work opportunities other than college. Among them are your reputation, personality, qualifications, experience, skills…
With a degree, you do look more desirable for a potential employer, but the factors influencing employment are not limited to the degree. Good luck with finding a job!
It depends on the type of job you want to do. Sometimes even good degrees do not bring employment. I assure you, degrees in Arts or MBA are not going to help. They are more likely to annoy employers and make them think you are inexperienced and have wasted your time on something useless. Additionally, your school does matter.
If it is a good school, you are more likely to get employed.
However, if you will not be working well, your degree will not save you. A degree does not ensure success, but it is useful.
To be brief, NO. Nowadays, a tendency exists in secondary school to prepare students for college. Curricula focus on future college qualities rather than on really necessary subjects. High schoolers are pressured to apply for university programs and promised it will ensure their employment. However, they have to face disappointment.
They have to get an unnecessary education and then pay off loans for decades. 70% of future graduates will need a technical certificate or associate degree instead of a four-year college degree.
Think about that and maybe choose a technical school rather than college.
You’ll get a job that may seem not prestigious, but you will make a proper income.
The only spheres where you really need higher education are law and healthcare. In other fields, employers do not care about your degree. Not that I am against higher education, but studying something in theory will replace learning from practice.
Many organizations put “Bachelor’s degree” on their list of requirement, but, trust me, if you have necessary qualifications and no degree, they will forget this requirement.
Nothing in the world would ever guarantee you a job or anything else.
Well, it does not guarantee you employment, but it provides you with an opportunity to find a well-paid position. Find a field you like and get a degree.
