Are you questioning if a college degree is worth it with this economy? Think again.
As we all know, the unemployment rate is high in America. Many of us have that thought in the back of our mind that we try not to think about, “am I really going to find a job when I graduate?” Many of us also wonder if the college degree is worth the pricey tuition we pay. Well, I have something to say to ease your nerves a little bit. Even though the unemployment rate for those recently graduated from college is 8.9 percent, the rate for those who earned a degree in Communications is only 7.3 percent. This is relatively low especially if you consider your other option: dropping out of college. The unemployment rate for those without at least a bachelor’s degree is a shocking 31.5 percent. I know you are worried about finding a job now, especially with all your schoolwork piling up, but don’t question your education. Don’t worry about landing your dream job right away because employers tend to prefer those with higher education for almost any position. Earning your degree looks a little better now, right?
