The other day I was consulting my cousin. She wants to come to the United States for higher studies. I did some research for her. This post is an output of that research. There are careers, high paying ones, that don’t require you to have a college degree.
On the other side, there are careers which do need an appropriate college degree? For me, I am from an orthodox family which always have advocated for education. Even knowing that career can be had without a degree. Even when my father didn’t have enough money to send me to college, he encouraged me to do so. Luckily the college I was admitted to had govt. subsidized education system.
As for my cousin, she’s been an excellent student all throughout her school. I am sure she’ll get scholarships as well. What about you? Or your son/daughter? How are you envisioning the career search? Will you go for your desire? Or, you’ll go for a career with a high potential for earning.
