And keep in mind that at this point in your life, time spent learning is only going to help. A person with a four-year college degrees earns, on average, $1 million more during a career than a person with just a high school diploma.
And if a four-year program isn’t for you - yet - you’ll need to consider two-year programs, vocational training or any other way to get knowledge that’ll help your career.
So get started now.
- What skills do you have and how do they apply to the workplace?
