Importance Of College Education

Feb 5, 2008
Young people might not realize how important a college education is until they come face to face with friends who did not go to college and hear the horror stories they tell about how difficult it has been for them to find work. In small communities, the differences noticed between the two groups might be quite significant because the job offers seem to go to those that hold college degrees and the menial jobs are left open for uneducated people to fill.

The importance of earning a college education will be truly noticeable on paydays because there will be a surmountable gap in the salaries that each person earns. The college graduate will naturally assume positions of authority in a large corporation, and will earn a generous salary with all the rewards and benefits of that position. Those employees without college degrees in hand might be offered salaries that are hundreds of dollars less per month and positions that are less prestigious.

The college graduate will feel more at ease when they enter the business world for the first time because they have been thoroughly briefed about what to expect in the courses they took while in college. These courses have prepared them to deal with interview process and how to handle several tasks at once. Just the fact that a college graduate has completed a degree program is in itself a good judge of the job applicant's character.

The rigorous course schedules will allow college graduates to be accustomed to multi-tasking on academic and social levels. While the course load allowed the college student to gain a wealth of information, it also trained the college student to become comfortable with taking on more responsibility over a significant amount of time. The importance of developing social skills while at college will become apparent when college graduates begin to schedule interviews.

The financial aid funding processes in place on many college campuses around the country taught students the importance of recognizing obstacles and finding solutions. Many college graduates will be quite used to employing some problem solving skills as they search for scholarships and other funding methods to pay for the college education they are getting. Finding funds through a multitude of channels will give college students the opportunity to experience first hand the importance of putting what they learned in the classroom into practical practice.

People that do not attend college before entering the work force might not know what employers are looking for during the hiring process. Some will be tasked to complete timed typing tests and a myriad of computer application performance tests. Since they did not get the chance to complete these courses in college, they might find that they are unqualified to fill any clerical position or position that uses this software to conduct business each day.

The management courses that were taken by students in college will prepare them to supervise a large number of people at one time. Non-graduates will realize how important an education is when they are told that they do not meet the minimum qualifications for any position that is open, and management positions will rarely be opened to those that do not possess some type of college degree.
