My response would be a question. What studies are you interested in. If you wish to get an undergraduate (bachelor's) certificate then possibly go on and earn a graduatre (master's) degree, I suggest you find a good university.
If you are more interested in being qualified in an area such as auto mechanics (this is in high demand now), you might try an institute of technology.
Carefully think through what your education needs are, based on your career interests.
You will always have an advantage over most other job candidates with higher education and especially in an area desired by a potential employer.
Jonesy 0311 answered your question well. But I am not quite sure why he suggests college first.
Thanks for asking the question. Good Luck.
