Does a degree mean a good job?
Balancing the cost of studying with your career goals.
The Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) estimate that 48% of university students who left university in 2015 now have non-graduate jobs. They also estimate that 77% of students will not pay their student loans back in full.
These increasing costs and the amount of debt students end up with, students need to consider whether the university degree path is the best route into the career they want.
It is not just 18 year olds who are looking at degrees and their future working life. Many of us look to change careers at different points in our careers.
A survey commissioned by the AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) in 2015 found that the average Briton will have six different job roles during their working life.
If this is the case, does it make sense to spend tens of thousands of pounds obtaining a degree that may not get you where you want to be for the rest of your life. Of course, some careers require a specific degree, such as nursing, physiotherapy, medicine and so on, but not all do.
If you are unhappy with your current job or career, why not consider training while you work? To use the cliché, earn while you learn.
Many jobs are better suited to people who have experience of life and work. Here are some that may be of interest to you.
