EDUCAREER: DO I REALLY NEED TO ATTEND COLLEGE FOR MY PROFESSION

auditorium, benches, board

“The paper won’t help, experience will.”


c’s get degrees

In life, we think that if only we attain a college degree, we can then go on to make a good living. Number one, what is the meaning of good living? The other is that going to college alone won’t grant you a job in the future or even at the moment. You have to gain some form of experience before landing that dream job. So be prepared to work long and hard. So no, having that piece of paper means you have just completed a gear switch from park to drive. But there is so much that goes into driving a car.

not work experience

There is a reason trying to use just a degree alone is tough to get a job. And that is that work experience is work experience. Going to college is not learning anything that will make you ready for that job. Meaning, just because you have a degree in sociology does not make you ready to work as a social worker. You have to go a long ways before you can really start to help people. Better get an internship and work from there on. Because all you need in school is a C average and you get a degree. That means the average college kid barely studies. Which is another reason your degree won’t matter.

what job, well it all depends

You want to become a doctor, then you have no other choice; you must attend med school. But if you want become a computer programmer, should you have to, yes and no. Depending on how specialized the job, you may have to attend school. Because people want to see a resume with a top tier school connected. Now, on the other hand you do have people that want to take in raw talent. But those are very few and far between. For the most part, people want to see an accredited school. That is unless you are self-employed.

NOW WHAT: WHERE SHOULD YOU TURN AFTER COLLEGE HAS ENDED

achievement, cap, celebration

“So many directions.”


BS. BA. MBA. PHD

You have been going to school since you were about six or seven years of age. Now that you have gotten out of college and it’s time to step into the world and you lose your way. You have no clue which way to turn because there is no road map to where you want to be in life. You have been sitting through all these lectures over the past four years and studying, but what next. You’re stuck because everyone made you think that having this piece of paper was worth wild. But what now?

go to work

Let’s say you worked at a fast food restaurant in college. Once you graduate you back to work and nothing is new. That is when life sets in that you have busted your butt to work fast food. You thought there was going to be these golden nuggets awaiting you. Just sitting there for when you graduate, you turn them in to start your life with salvageable assets. Reality is, a college degree is the icing on the cake. Now you have to out and bake the cake, then spread the icing on top. Sounds crazy when you think that the college degree was the cake.

intern or fellow or apprentice

Whatever you want to be, you must be willing to put in a great deal of work for nothing in the beginning. Why, well because you can’t demand a lot of money because you have done nothing. So you must start out at the bottom. Get yourself an internship, or be apart of a fellowship or apprenticeship program. You are learning and meeting people; making contacts that you could utilize down the road. It may not seem like much in the paradigm of living, but over time it adds up to experience.

don’t fear

But hey, don’t be afraid. Everyone goes through the problems you are going through. Only thing is, some give up and never keep going. That is where you lose. You have to learnt embrace not only change, but take your loses. It’s apart of life, and hopefully, just hopefully you come out on the other side.

JUNEDUCATION: A MONTH TO LEARNING

accomplishment, ceremony, college

“What is it really?”


june

The month of May is ending and June is beginning. And the month of June is going to be yet another topic. And the topic for the month will be education. Once again, 12 topics video uploaded and throughout the month random post surrounding education. The topics will be how public grammar schools are changing with technology to how negatively technology is effecting teaching; even how the landscape of college is changing.

why education

The reason for the focus this month, is how the need to attend school and attain an education is changing. Arising questions of whether we will need college in the future or not. The cost associated with going to and not going to school. Technology taking over that could put educators out of jobs. Or maybe a new market will open to teachers teaching from home. Coincidently I am writing this topic while schools across the country are wrapping up the year.

enjoy

So, as you read, I hope you find enjoyment out the topics as you have thus far with my blog. Continue to read, like, share, and follow.
