In today’s world, an education is the most important tool to conquering and understanding the world we live in and how to succeed in it. Education makes finding a job and creating a career for yourself easier. Your peers and closest friends will become your competition while the companies you’re applying for are searching for higher educated employees. Being new to the work world is much like being on a large campus for the first time, you’re lost and confused. An education is the map of the campus that will show you the way.
Many people plan to enter the work world right after high school. However, this is not always your best option. A high school diploma is useful, but it’s only a start. Better jobs will “require some college experience.” Let’s say you and a friend are applying to the same job. You have a high school diploma and your friend has a Master’s Degree. Immediately, your friend has a much better chance of being hired just because they have a better education than you. If that job were to have limited positions available, you would be turned away having to watch your friend go on without you.
In society today, an education is far beyond important. Everyone starts life in the handcuffs of the uneducated. A high school diploma will only unlock one of the cuffs. Get a higher education and free both hands.
