College Education

College Education is one of the most important things you can gain in life because without it you wouldn’t be able to get a good job to provide money for your family. So its really vital that you get it also it is great to see what you want to do for a job during college because what your majoring in will teach you about what you need to do for that job so it basically provides your needs for the field that you are looking to go into.

If somebody came to the same job interview as you and didn’t have the type of experience of school or just experience that you did then you would probably get the job unless the guy that was interviewing you was an idiot. That is another reason why college education is so valuable.

My dad was one of the people who got really lucky because he didn’t go to very much college at all, maybe two semesters, but anyways he was really lucky because he didn’t have enough education for a lot of stuff and he ended up getting a not so good job at first but then when we moved to Heber from Neola he got a really good job so he was extremely lucky in that area.

My mom did not need luck because she has two masters in teaching and administration, so she ended up just easily getting a job at any school she wanted to she went to U of U and SUU and Utah State to get everything that she has, so my mom made the wise decision of going to college and getting a very good education. It amazes me to see how smart she is. I can ask her like pretty much anything and she can answer it with ease she is so smart its amazing.

In this time in age you have to have a college education it is so vital. You cannot get a good job if you don’t have it. Even if you do have college education you should have experience in the field you want to go into. And any thing that’s not a Masters still won’t get you to far. College education is important.
