Earning a college degree is important because not only do you get to expand your knowledge but most jobs are more likely to hire people that are in college vs. someone who has no college experience. I have experienced it myself where I was denied a job because I did not have any college experience. In a article called “College Graduates have Weathered the Recession Well,” Beth Keller states that “there are more employed college graduates than there are employed high school graduates and high school dropouts together.” Of course, who wouldn’t chose to hire someone more educated? Since people with college degrees are the ones getting the jobs this mean they’re the ones getting the money too. Which Beth Keller also states in the article “College Graduates have Weathered the Recession Well” that with “Findings as recent as 2011 show that there is a $1 million difference in high school graduates earnings compared with those whose highest education is a bachelors degree and those with a doctorates.” Although many may say that money can’t buy happiness, money can play a big role in how happy we can be. So if you want the good job that makes the good money, it’s best that you get a college degree.
