BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
There are many factors
that will affect a person’s life. The most important of’ these factors is
whether or not one has a college degree. There are many reasons why obtaining a
college degree has such a strong influence on one’s life.
A college education can open many doors in a person’s search for a career.
People that have attained a college degree are hired in at a higher pay and are
considered to be much more employable. This means that a college graduate would
be more likely to be offered employment than another who did not attend college
or did not attain a degree. The unemployment rate for a person with less than a
high school diploma is more than three times that of a person with a college
degree (U.S. Department of Labor).
College will also assist in preparing a person for a career in a particular
field. In a vast majority of highly specialized jobs, if one does not have a
college degree, there is little to no possibility of securing a career in that
chosen field. College will give a person the tools to succeed in the field of
their choice. These tools would not be available to most people who do not
Another aspect that should be considered is the fact that people with a college
degree will earn $650,000 more over their lifetime than someone who does not
have a degree (U.S. Deptartment of Labor). As a person’s level of education
increases, so does their income level. For example: In Massachusetts, the
average income for a high school graduate is $46,523. A person who has a
bachelor’s degree has an average income of $81,026. For persons with a master’s
degree, the average income increases to $96,519 (U.S. Census Bureau). As one
can see, there is a substantial increase in the average income between a person
with no degree and one with a college degree.
IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY
One of the most important elements that people see on a resume is
college education. These days, it is harder to get a job unless you go to
college. There continues to be competition for employment after college and it
depends on what college one attends. For example, there are huge gaps on the
average salaries between a student who attends Harvard and a student who
attends somewhere less prestigious. The reasons why people go to college are to
get good jobs, which means more money and also to obtain more social and life
First, people say that getting a job is the first obstacle in life. The second
obstacle is getting married and third is how to take care of your child or
children. In order to pass the first obstacle, which is getting a good job is
the most important. The result of this first obstacle can impact the second and
third obstacles. This expresses how important it is to get a job. The first
thing that people look for is what college the applicant goes to. College
expresses how well organized you are and also how smart and what habits you
have. Also, this means that the applicant has the potential to work hard and keep
the work that the applicant is suppose to do.
In addition, the second reason why people go to college is to gain more social
experience and learn more knowledge. People can marry any time they want.
However, the reason why people do not marry until their twenty’s or older is
because they are not mature enough. People do not have enough knowledge if they
marry when they are teenagers. People have to learn what social life is or how
the world economic is going. Furthermore, having a baby or being a husband/
wife means that it is going to cost a lot of money in order to survive. In
college, you can make more friends and meet people who are just the same as you
are. For example, if you have an interest in Sociology, you can meet people who
are studying about sociology in classes and get to talk to them about the
topic. People experience what social life is and how tough it is to work in a
company and the importance of teamwork. People start to get salaries and get
some knowledge on how to survive without parents.
In conclusion, I think it is important to go to college not just to study but
also to gain some experience and to get a good job. My parents always give me
good reasons to say that just focus and study really hard when you are in
middle school or in high school. Then, my parents tell me what are some of the
reasons why I have to study hard in middle school and in high school. The
reasons that they always tell me is that you will regret when you get to a
college. People seem to think “I should have studies hard at that time”, but it
is too late once you go to a college. For example, if one does not study hard
before college, they have a lot of remedial work to do. I hope people do not
regret once they are in college, instead to study hard when you are younger in
order to be accepted to a good college
