Is Obtaining A College Or University Degree Becoming Less Relevant In Today's America?
Today's America is yesterday's on account of esteemed universities in America.If they were relevant yesterday they cannot be less relevant today for tomorrow's America.
On the contrary, employment opportunities significantly increase with a college degree. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (http://bls.gov/emp/ep_chart_001.htm), on an average, bachelor degree holders earn almost double the amount high school graduates do in the span of a single week. Since competition in terms of employment is so fierce, employers receive many applicants for a single job and often use higher education as a criterion to sift through the candidates. Accredited, recognized college degree programs give the practical, theoretical and technical training in a wide range of fields across a chosen major, which is what prospective employers are looking for.
