BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY There are many factorsthat will affect a person’s life. The most important of’ these factors iswhether or not one has a college degree. There are many reasons why obtaining acollege degree has such a strong influence on one’s life. A college education can open many doors in a person’s search for a career.People that have attained a college degree are hired in at a higher pay and areconsidered to be much more employable.
This means that a college graduate wouldbe more likely to be offered employment than another who did not attend collegeor did not attain a degree. The unemployment rate for a person with less than ahigh school diploma is more than three times that of a person with a collegedegree (U.S. Department of Labor). College will also assist in preparing a person for a career in a particularfield. In a vast majority of highly specialized jobs, if one does not have acollege degree, there is little to no possibility of securing a career in thatchosen field. College will give a person the tools to succeed in the field oftheir choice.
These tools would not be available to most people who do notattend college. Another aspect that should be considered is the fact that people with a collegedegree will earn $650,000 more over their lifetime than someone who does nothave a degree (U.S.
Deptartment of Labor). As a person’s level of educationincreases, so does their income level. For example: In Massachusetts, theaverage income for a high school graduate is $46,523. A person who has abachelor’s degree has an average income of $81,026. For persons with a master’sdegree, the average income increases to $96,519 (U.S. Census Bureau). As onecan see, there is a substantial increase in the average income between a personwith no degree and one with a college degree.
IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY One of the most important elements that people see on a resume iscollege education. These days, it is harder to get a job unless you go tocollege. There continues to be competition for employment after college and itdepends on what college one attends. For example, there are huge gaps on theaverage salaries between a student who attends Harvard and a student whoattends somewhere less prestigious. The reasons why people go to college are toget good jobs, which means more money and also to obtain more social and lifeexperiences.
First, people say that getting a job is the first obstacle in life. The secondobstacle is getting married and third is how to take care of your child orchildren. In order to pass the first obstacle, which is getting a good job isthe most important. The result of this first obstacle can impact the second andthird obstacles. This expresses how important it is to get a job.
The firstthing that people look for is what college the applicant goes to. Collegeexpresses how well organized you are and also how smart and what habits youhave. Also, this means that the applicant has the potential to work hard and keepthe work that the applicant is suppose to do.In addition, the second reason why people go to college is to gain more socialexperience and learn more knowledge. People can marry any time they want.
However, the reason why people do not marry until their twenty’s or older isbecause they are not mature enough. People do not have enough knowledge if theymarry when they are teenagers. People have to learn what social life is or howthe world economic is going. Furthermore, having a baby or being a husband/wife means that it is going to cost a lot of money in order to survive. Incollege, you can make more friends and meet people who are just the same as youare. For example, if you have an interest in Sociology, you can meet people whoare studying about sociology in classes and get to talk to them about thetopic.
People experience what social life is and how tough it is to work in acompany and the importance of teamwork. People start to get salaries and getsome knowledge on how to survive without parents.In conclusion, I think it is important to go to college not just to study butalso to gain some experience and to get a good job. My parents always give megood reasons to say that just focus and study really hard when you are inmiddle school or in high school. Then, my parents tell me what are some of thereasons why I have to study hard in middle school and in high school. Thereasons that they always tell me is that you will regret when you get to acollege. People seem to think “I should have studies hard at that time”, but itis too late once you go to a college. For example, if one does not study hardbefore college, they have a lot of remedial work to do.
I hope people do notregret once they are in college, instead to study hard when you are younger inorder to be accepted to a good college STATEMENTOF THE PROBLEM What do they prefer to gowork or school after Senior High?
