should we really need to graduate college to get a good job?

Finishing school is what every student aspires to do for they look at their future having a good job once they become professional. But earning a fortune is not only brought by having a degree in college because i know some businessman/woman who are successful in life not because of their education but because of their will and guts. So for me, it is not standard that finishing college could provide you a real good job that will bring you fortune. Do you agree?

i dont think that it is an absolute must to graduate from college in order to get a good job, but no doubt graduating helps one find that good job. at the end of the day however, it all boils down to opportunity and whether one is able to seize an opportunity when it is presented.

i believe also that it is better that you are in a right place and time when an opportunity comes whether you are a college graduate or not and you able to grab it then it will bring you success.

I believe so too, that a college degree is not a guarantee that you will be successful or you will earn big fortune. It's a matter of knowing what to do at the right time and right place. In the book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki, the Rich Dad there did not even finish the third grade, while the Poor Dad had doctorates. So it's really a matter of creating the opportunity rather than just waiting for it.

I agree with you on that. Its a fact that alot of rich people didn't finish school or get these degrees (with million dollar loans owed behind them). However alot of jobs out there do require that higher education for good salaries. If you don't want to go to school but want the money, I suggest comin up with a plan to get money a different more creative way. You never know what you'll come up with. Might end up being the next billionare!
