Career & Jobs

Quite often the pro college crowd can sound like elitist and in fact down right snobbish. The fact is that there are pros and cons for those that choose to go to college and for those that don't go to college. Half of all business owners do not have a college degree. Having a degree does not guarantee a high earning career. That has more to do with the major that you choose, your grades and how much hard work that you put in. For those that don't go to or finish college the reasons are many. Quite often it's money, for others the challenge of maintaining their grades is too much and lastly for many it's just a matter of not wanting to go to school for an additional four plus years after high school.
