I am thinking about this.They said, education is the key to success. But why there were a lot of graduate students still don't have a work for them. If no work, no money to be spent for their everyday life. When you compare of having a business like involving in a networking-marketing strategies, you are just only able to refer persons of persons until you get your satisfaction of having money for the purpose of everyday needs.Hmm?? What can you say guys?

I think you must do both at once. I learn in a secondary school but I also join many competitions (media, journalism) and I also working on to make a living online! Both goes on well Anyway you must go to school to get those papers... But a good business will lead you to victory.

Hi, It is not that everyone who got the education is un-employed, most of my known are employed somewhere and are doing their respective jobs. Those people who are still unemployed are unemployed because they don't have enough zeal to work somewhere. Education gives one the ability to be employed somewhere but getting or not getting employed is one's own choice. Remember necessity is the mother of invention.

Hi i think education is important because it is the root for a person to gain knowledge and speaking of persons who are jobless after completing graduation it is their fault for not utilizing the knowledge they earned through education but not of the education.If they use their knowledge and communication skills effectively they will definitely find a good job.

Since we need to choose one.. so I will say business why? because this is how we earn our living right.Level one is education and the level 2 is Business. Here in Philippines people like us do want to study and finished college so that we can have a better job local or abroad so then we can have a good income so when we have enough Savings we can quit in our job being an employee working in a company or business, so then we can start running our own business.This is the main target of all.Many uneducated people here you see near the sidewalk or in the market selling having their small business but when you checked their background they already bought their own house have finished their children in good school because of the income they earn from their simple business. And you will see me finished in College an lots of those like me who are unemployed and haven't stable life.or even those who are working now are just only renting unless they work as a CEO of a company or Engineer or seaman .. that's only the job that the salary is big and you can save money to build for your future and to have a stable life.

Education won't prepare you for everything but it will ensure you have a lot less chance of failure and risk. Education shows a lot on a person but without the work experience it is missing a lot of solid foundations one can build on.

These two are both important but graduating is not a guarantee that you will have a successful career. A friend of mine who graduated last March does not a work until now because his standards are too high for his skills. He doesn't want to start at the bottom but wants to be a boss right away. I suggested to him that maybe he should start at the bottom and the company may notice his performance and get promoted. But he refused and still continue to apply as executive or managerial position. His father gave him money to start a business of his own but the investment did not return because of bad decisions and high lifestyle. Education may be the key to success but it also needs smart decisions, being hardworking and consistent in what you are doing.
