How Important Is College? [Infographic]

If there was something you could do that would measurably change your entire life, wouldn’t you do it?  A college degree can add over a million dollars of extra income to your working life span, yet only about 40% of people in the United States have one.  The demand for job applicants who have at least a bachelors degree is climbing as well.  Two thirds of the 55 million jobs that will be added to the American economy by 2020 are expected to require a bachelors degree or higher, though college enrollment and graduation rates are not keeping pace.  If trends continue the way they are going, there will not be enough qualified job applicants to fill all these positions into the future.  Learn more about the importance of going to college and sticking with it from this infographic.  It could be a total game changer for you and your family.
