Why A College Education Matters

College is an important stepping stone not only for your financial future, but for your overall personal development. Continuing your education after high school increases your earning potential. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, those with college degrees earn about $1 million more over a lifetime than those with a high school diploma.
The more education you have, the more likely you will have a job. The last recession certainly put a lot of out of work. Those with a college education had more choices on finding additional jobs.
Most employers require a college degree as a basis for employment. As you apply for jobs online, those without college degrees aren’t even looked at by an employer. They are screened out immediately.
So as you consider continuing your education, know that by pursuing a degree, you will increase your opportunities in the future.
