It depends on what data you look at. But a lot of data estimates that as much as 43% of college grads are underemployed in their first jobs out of school. Or they get a degree and still don’t know what they want to do. And a lot of the time their degree doesn’t give them actual workplace skills. So, it’s no wonder a lot of younger people are asking, “Is college necessary?”
Of course, some jobs and careers require extended schooling. Like doctors and lawyers for example. And there are still plenty of college graduates who find their dream job after graduation.
But with the ever-changing technology landscape, skills you learn this year might not get you a decent job four years from now. And if you invest four years (and a ton of money) on a degree with no real-life-real-world value, it could be a heavy weight on your shoulders for years.
So, instead of asking “Is college necessary?” figure out if it’s for YOU.
Because YOU are unique. And YOU don’t have the same gifts and talents as anybody else. And with the mind-blowing amount of information there is on just about every subject you can imagine, you can take a much more focused approach to your life’s work.
Examples of what I’m talking about are all around you. I mean, who’d have guessed, even a few years ago, you could create a knitting class and enroll students from around the world?
Or what about the story of the lady, living in a small town in Kansas, who found a market for all the tumbleweeds that littered her land? Sounds crazy. But she has a thriving business.
And those are just two examples of people building successful businesses based on their talents and creative ideas. What burns inside you? Chances are there’s a market for it. And chances are you don’t need a college degree to go for it.
That’s why I developed RondaReady YOUniversity.
To help you determine who and what you want to be. By giving you what I call System Thinking skills.
System Think is how you develop your vision, your mission, and your plan. A System to help you prepare to own and operate a business, if that’s your dream. Or be able to move through the ranks of cutting edge businesses, if that’s what you prefer.
