With the escalating cost of college education together with the student loans, being a student and having a side hustle has become a common trend. As a matter of fact, being jobless in college is considered odd.
More commentary from a college friend of mine. It would be wise to follow his advice:
If you’re in college and have yet to declare your major or if you have already declared a major and you wonder what types of jobs are in the offing once you graduate, the latest Georgetown University report should be of interest to you.
Not every college-bound student must purse a bachelor’s degree. There are quite a few jobs that require no more than an associate degree and still pay quite well.
You have a regular job or attend school, but have always dreamed about launching a business on the side. Like many budding entrepreneurs, you’re not about to quit your day job.
America’s community colleges are two-year public schools and are often not fully appreciated for what they do. Community colleges prepare Americans for work, by offering certificate programs and associate degrees that can lead to a whole range of jobs.
With a degree in hand you’re ready to take on the world. Trouble is, the world is not supplying the job you thought was waiting for you. Instead, your chosen field has dried up and the only job openings will come about when someone retires or new positions are created.
It is a fact that college graduates are finding it difficult to launch their careers. Despite officially lower unemployment numbers, record numbers of Americans are not in the workforce. Moreover, job growth is weak with the best growth occurring in the service sector.
