Go to college despite the job market

 

 

The year 2011 provided several arguments to skip college -- high unemployment rates, tuition hikes and a harsh job market for grads. Go anyway!

According to a 2010 report by Georgetown University, 63 percent of jobs offered by 2018 will require postsecondary education. It may seem counterintuitive, but investing in a higher education is the best way to bounce back from a recession. College graduates have access to more jobs opportunities in fast-growing industries and emerging markets ... and have better chances of earning larger salaries.

You can cut college costs by searching for scholarships early and investigating awards in your community.
