I think there are more and more people starting to realize you don’t have to have a college degree to be a success in life. And, like I’ve said before, college might actually be necessary for some careers, but not always. Not by a long shot. So, a lot more people look for alternatives to college. If that’s you, here’s a suggestion. Get a job.
Yeah, if you truly don’t wanna work for someone else, get a job.
I know, I know. It sounds like crazy backwards talk. But hang in there with me. And I think I can show you how it could work. Especially if you’re looking for college alternatives, but you’re not quite ready to start your own business.
A job is a great way to get some experience and learn the ropes of an industry or service you’re interested in. And, even better, you earn while you learn. Bam! That’s a win-win.
So, let’s say you wanna start your own burger joint. A friend of mine shared a story of a young guy who wanted to do that. So, that ambitious young guy got jobs in most of the major burger joints. You know, McDonald’s, Burger King, Dairy Queen. And he learned all he could. From the back room inventory to the kitchen to the front of the house cleaning.
And keep in mind, as he learned all the inside information he could, about running a burger joint, he also got paid.
Now, I’m not saying the only job you can get is flipping burgers. Although, if you wanna open your own burger joint, like that ambitious young man in the example, then flipping burgers is an awesome job. But these days you might wanna earn as you learn in a more high-tech industry…for another example.
Sure, you might be thinking, “They’ll want a college degree. So, that shoots down that idea.”
But even though a lot of people will tell you that those jobs require college degrees, it ain’t necessarily so. As a matter of fact, there are some pretty recognizable names and companies who’d hire you without a college degree. But, if you don’t have college credentials, you better have…
Just do a quick internet search for companies that have hired young, ambitious people with “the skills” those companies needed. And you’ll find enough stories to convince you that you don’t need that piece of paper from a college.
But you’ll need to convince somebody that you have “the skills” they’re looking for…and that you can create or develop value for them. Show them how they’ll make more money with you than they’ll pay you. Do that, and I bet you get a job.
And if you really don’t have “the skills” anybody is looking for, then you gotta stick with entry-level work. And the benefit of those kinds of jobs is right back where that ambitious young burger joint entrepreneur started.
Earn as you learn.
But what if you just don’t know where to start?
Then, I have another college alternative idea. RondaReady YOUniversity. It’s a course designed especially to help people just getting started in the real world. And it helps you develop real skills for real life. Plus, it helps you focus on YOU. So, you’ll know who you are, what you should do, and how to get there.
And the great news is…even an entry-level job will earn you enough to pay for RondaReady YOUniversity.
