College is over-rated, 4-Year Degrees Not for Everyone
Don’t blame your parents. America convinced itself that an extended education period – think 4 years, 6 years, 8+ years – was the way to success and wealth. Expensive and Time Consuming, huh!?
- 27% of Trade School Grads Earn More than College Grads
- 21% Are More Likely to Work in their Field of Choice
- 4% Have Higher Employment Opportunities – and the Gap in Skilled Trades Pros is GROWING
- $65,000 is the Average Salary for Skilled Trades Jobs
Fact is college is vastly over-rated. So, please don’t start thinking of apprenticeships and on-the-job training as a kind of consolation prize.
Maybe think of your life this way. Where do you want to be? What do you enjoy doing? Would you be happier sitting in a corner office, or building it?
