How to Plan Higher Education as an Adult?Reading Time: 2 minutes
The value of a college education has come into doubt thanks to rising tuition costs, increasing student-loan debt, high unemployment and a sluggish economy that is keeping millions of college-educated people in jobs that don’t require their education. These circumstances leave some high school graduates questioning whether it pays to pursue a higher education.
As a result of this dilemma, the number of high school graduates who decide not to continue studying increases every year. Even if you made up your mind to take on student debt, it is a challenge to smoothly manage all the attendant liabilities, including choosing an education program, keeping in mind living expenses, transportation costs and of course loan repayment.
However, a college education is worth the investment and the long-term payoff, even in a tight economy. Besides higher earnings, college graduates are more likely to be employed. They witness smaller drops in both employment and wages than those without a college degree.
Yet another argument is that new challenging circumstances can teach you valuable lessons in your career and provide personal growth. Sometimes, a challenge can push you on a path to a career you have never envisioned for yourself.
Ambition doesn’t take a vacation
