What is the point of going on?

Do you ever say to yourself: I don’t want to study any more? I’m going to leave school (or university) get a job. In this article, we look at two good reasons to continue get good qualifications.

In many countries, research shows that higher education is very important for your future. Firstly, you earn more money you have good qualifications (see Figure 1). People with no qualifications do not get good jobs most managers want qualified people. Well-paid jobs are usually better jobs too, they are more interesting. In addition, unqualified people have jobs, they do not often have a career. Well-qualified people usually start a career after university. They start at one level they get promoted every three or four years. You need to make a career plan. Ask yourself: What employment sector am I going to work in? Where would I like to be in two years, five years, ten years?

Secondly, you may lose your job you may become unemployed. However, well-qualified people are not that common, a person with qualifications can usually get another job quickly (see Figure 2). A well-qualified person can continue his or her career with a different company. The message is clear. Go on to higher education, get good qualifications, you will soon have money for clothes and CDs an interesting, well-paid job. And don’t forget to make a career plan.
