Advantages of Going Straight to College
1. The earning potential of a person who completes a college degree significantly increases after leaving college. It is a reality that most businesses base their reward system on educational achievements or how much training was completed for a particular job. Most reward systems look at KSA, which means knowledge, skills and abilities. These are very important criterion for many pay scales. The higher your knowledge, skills or abilities, then the higher your reward.
2. A college degree indicates to the world, and your future employer in particular, that you are trainable. This is more attractive to employers, than if you had no certification.
3. Gaining a college degree is a self development exercise. College is not just about school work, even though that is undoubtedly important, it is also about responsibility and enhancing your educational horizons, extending your brain to analyze and evaluate information that may be handy in your next job.
4. A college degree lends credibility to your position, as a specialist in any area. For example, if an ordinary person without medical credentials performs several successful heart operations, even though they were successful at heart surgery, they will be rejected by law as a doctor without the relevant certification.
