It is a daunting task to have to choose what you want to do with the rest of your life when you’re eighteen years old. There are numerous avenues and programs to choose from, and you need to keep in mind that you should always pursue what interests you. Therefore, a four-year college program may not be the right choice for everyone. Trade school is an excellent option that can yield more career benefits for those looking to pursue further education after high school.
To begin with, attaining a Bachelor’s Degree usually takes an average of four years. As Trent Hamm points out in his article, “Why You Should Consider Trade School Instead of College” this takes off valuable years of real world experience in a person’s chosen field. Cost is also a big issue; the Idaho Department of Labor found that the average bachelor’s degree in the US costs $127,000. Additionally, just because people attend college does not necessarily ensure that they will graduate. The Institute of Education Statistics estimated that 40% of students drop out before completing their bachelor’s degree. For those that go on to complete their degrees, an astronomical 64% take longer than the average four years to graduate. Also, a Bachelor’s Degree does not necessarily equal an immediate guarantee of a job when a student graduates.
