Serge V.’s Answer

Some fields does not require a college education but they still have a great income to offer (Police Officer, Firefighter). Also experience is a huge factor. You should explore options to see what's better for you. Are you more concerned about a better wage or being happy? I have a lot of friends who makes more money than me but they are miserable at their jobs.

Ashley’s Answer

Hi Alondra! I noticed your collegeorrefineries - often work in refineries is very tough, manual labor and is the case in my fields that do not require a college degree. For instance, my brother did not go to college and he makes good money. There are a lot of downsides for him though; he works as a contractor that buries fiber-optic cables underground. The work is super tough, long hours, and he gets no paid vacation time. He is constantly exhausted after work. Sometimes the pay is higher for those kind of jobs so people are willing to do them!


There are pros and cons either way you go. I recommend to figure out what you would love to do for your career and list out a few ideas. Then write out the pros and cons of each and research what steps are required to get that career.

Michelle’s Answer

Hello, Alondra E. - That is a good question which has many people discussing and making conclusions about .


How much money you will get in your own individual future is impossible to predict. The possession of or lack of a college degree does not automatically dictate how much your earning potential will be. So many different factors go into earning potential.


The purpose of college is not to get a job that will guarantee wealth. The purpose of getting an academic college education is more about personal growth, exploration and learning how to advance your communication skills among other skills as well. It is also a very important way to network and meet people that have the same goals you have, therefore fostering special bonds . It is an experience that will give structure to challenging you intellectually and allow you to explore emotionally. To think of going to college just for a paycheck defeats it's purpose.


If you are concerned about money only, than it may be better for you to research what careers afford the highest wages in the town you plan to work in. I know social workers who make $39,000.00 a year and I know some that make$90,000.00 a year. In the end, it will all boil down to what a particular company is willing to pay . No one can guess at that.


Always remember that everyone's experience is different. Try not to be influenced by how good "things look" for other people. In the end, you will want to work at what you love and you can decide that based on getting to know yourself better.


Best wishes in your future endeavors .
