Some people wants to pursue higher education after high school; While others might thought that is enough for them. In our competitive job market, how do you view about schooling. It will be waste of time for you, because you were not interested. Or you rather invest your time and you want to improve yourself better with higher education?

I did pursue further education after high school. I have my AA in Spanish, my BS in Accounting, and I will be working on my Masters degree in education.

I did both. I went to school and had to stop because I could no longer afford it. But after 5 years of horrible jobs I went back to school and it is the best thing I have ever done. I will make in one year what my husband and I made together last year. While that is still not enough for us to be filthy rich, I don't want to be rich anyway. I suggest higher education. Most any job can benifit from it.

Me too. I have to stop further study after I graduated from college because of poor finacial situation. I am going to take some professional course in higher education with my hubby as well.

I stop to have further education after I graduated from college, but I never missed a chance to self-study, I don't see it is a waste of time for people to have further education.

Hi there After high school, I took up mechanical engineering and a vocational course. I believe in continuous education. It broadens our horizon and saves us from Alzheimer. Good Day!

In my country it's not a choice to pursue higher education or not. It's a must. If you did not at least reach a certain level of higher education your chance of getting a good job is nil, unless you have some vocational training, which is still something that one needs to study after high school.

I'll pursue further education after high school, I don't think this is a waste fo time. Just like you said, investing time on education can improve myself and will definitley help me to find a better job in my later working career. At least in my country, companies really care which college do you graduate. So in my opinion, college is necessary.
