Do I need a college degree?

There are many roads that lead to success, and while most people believe that achieving high monetary compensation is impossible without a college degree, there’s a different truth in evidence.

A college degree can certainly open doors that would otherwise remain closed. Most companies prefer to hire individuals that have a demonstrated ability to carry out the functions of their job, and seeing a college degree as clear indication of that. But when it comes right down to it, hard work and dedication can vastly improve your opportunities, and there have been many people who have worked their way up to positions of prominence without college educations.

Is the lack of a college degree holding you back? Consider enrolling in adult education or a distance learning program.
