Graduating Post Secondary Education: Getting A Good Degree
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you have made it to the final home stretch in your college existence, then you should be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Earning your degree, your certificate or your technical title should be the most fulfilling part of the whole educational process, and you should find yourself looking forward to that moment with great joy and expectation. Clutching that paper that shows the world that you successfully completed a course of work, and that you began something and stuck with it to the very end, for better or worse.

Depending on what type of education you are pursing, you have worked hard for six months to six years, or longer. It does not matter how long you have invested in your future, no matter what you have selected to pursue, you have worked hard at it, and deserve all of the accolades and praise that your family wants to heap onto you. Do not deny them the right to throw you a graduation party and never allow anyone, (even yourself) to minimize what you have done. You have worked hard and now deserve a round of applause at the very least.

Once you have earned your degree, you will be faced with finding employment in a shaky at best economy. Degrees will help you get a leg up on the competition, especially when it comes down to two employees with similar levels of experience and other factors. A college degree is not the only way to earn an education and subsequent employment. Technical or trade school education can be just as, if not more valuable than a college degree.

Learning a valuable, hands on trade should be regarded as an excellent way to get your future off to a sunny start. Technical schooling may also be quicker than traditional college programs, because it is specific to the one job skill or another. If you go to a welding program, you learn different techniques of welding, and do not waste a lot of time on film appreciation or other types of classes. If an employer is searching for a welder, he is not going to care about your views on film noir, after all.

There are times when any degree, no matter what the technical related courses were will edge out the lack of degree, even if the latter person has more work experience than the former. It may not seem fair, but some employers look for college education to show dedication to completing what is started.
