Why won't my high school diploma be enough?
Studies tell us that continuing your education after high school can make a big impact on both job security and the potential for earning a higher salary. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in May 2010, the unemployment rate for workers with only a high school diploma was 9.7%. This rate dropped significantly as their level of education increased. The same report found that the median weekly earnings for those with only a high school diploma were $626, while those with an Associate degree or equivalent earned $761. Convinced, yet?
