Some people think that they can be successful if they finish college... some do get successful. Some people think they can get rich someday if they finish college...some do get rich. The rest do get successful and rich or both, and they didn't finished college or haven't finished high school at all. Now of course I'm talking bout good guys here. Having a diploma is just one of the tools, isn't it. One must be hardworking, innovative, observant, adventurous, patient and a lot more.You learn some in school, the rest, you learn from experience, from interaction from other people, you learn some from the streets, from the high end gatherings. Timing is essential too...as opportunities doesn't wait for us and there are lots of people there just waiting for the chance to grab that opportunity. And to top it all, blessings from above is very important, with this we don't lose. (^_^)

well.....you become a member of the jobless society LOL! Our government has no job to offer those who graduated from college. University education is no longer a guarantee to land a good job. All the things I learned in my job since I started to work was not taught in the university. I learned everything through experience and practice. If our graduates will not get out of the country, they will have a slim chance to progress, anyway a lot of call centers are waiting for them.....cheers!

This is when real life starts to happen. After college, you'll have to find a job and landing on a good one is quite hard knowing that there are a lot of competition. Most jobs would require the applicant work experience which the newly grads don't have. Getting a diploma is one thing, but proving yourself in the real employment world is another thing, it usually do take longer. In college, you learn the theories. In the real world you are expected to apply those that you have learned and combine it with your wits and skills in order for you to survive.

hi.. graduating college is crossroad.. its when u wake up i9n the morning realizing you dont even know what to do, where to go. back when i was still in school, every thing in a days work was planned,.. hectic schedules trying to beat the deadline of your project, busy hours mastering performances.. s0o0o college.. but, after graduating, learning doesnt stop there, in fact its only the beginning of sum thing more. its up to you on how u would pave your road to success. in what ever cross roads u encounter, make sure you take the right and wisest turn..

I think to expect what happens later is the mistake most people do, it's important to seek for a job way before college is over, to send out resum├ęs while studying.

I never went one day to High School, and at age 77, I think it was right for me. When you have a handful of diplomas you tend to sit down and expect the world to knock at your door. This seldom happens! On the other hand when you start work at 16 you get to learn many lessons that are not taught in college! Life has been good to me, and I work every summer day at a job I love. I am rich enough to own a house in Texas for the winter, and a home in Canada for the summer! What more does a man need?

it reminds me of what my daughter exclaimed after graduation, "real world, here i come!" credentials may or may not count in achieving success. but i believe it is all about attitude, how one challenges one's self, and work on a goal. it is about being positive and driven.

Well when I graduate I am pretty much going to look for my job that I will be able to look for at the time and that being is a medical assistant. So I pretty much always look towards the future and I always try to plan ahead it won't be to hard to get a job in the medical field because people will always get sick theirs no avoiding that.

Education can give you a good job but I think only few academics get rich. Many people who venture into a business has a great chance to make a lot of money. Being successful is not a chance it's our choice.

If you graduate college, it is not a gurantee that you of becoming successful. There are many graduates who ends up at home. It really matters on the perseverance of the person to find for job and give value to their jobs.
