#1 Establishing Financial Independence
Jobs that pay well and that offer advancement opportunities require more than a high school diploma; they require employees who know how to think and solve problems-
skills that you gain when you go to college. Earning a college degree can help you to:
Find a job that you enjoy and find fulfilling;
Keep a job during times of economic downturn and instability;
Earn more money than people who do not continue their education after high school; and
Secure a job that offers benefits such as health insurance, paid vacations and retirement plans.
