Overview

Whatever your career and salary goals are, chances are they will require some education and training after high school. If you start a job without additional training, it may be difficult to move up to a better position.

While your career goals might not be focused on earning lots of money, consider that most college graduates earn twice as much in their lifetime as high school graduates. You usually will earn more based on how much additional education you have obtained beyond a high school diploma.

Workers with higher levels of education are generally less likely to be unemployed. If you have a higher level of education and become unemployed, it will likely take less time for you to find a new job.

Additional education and training does not guarantee success. However, it will provide you with tools to move forward in your career, open up jobs in occupations that interest you, and give you greater security.
