Should I Go to College?
Should I go to College?
Brothers and sisters in arms, Mike Sarrialle from CareerRecon. I’m back.
One of the questions I get is, should I or should I not go to college? And my answer is yes, no, it depends. It ultimately depends on what you want to achieve in life. If you want to own your own welding company, you can still go to college, that may not be the best time served. If you want to own your own welding company, then get your welding certificate. Then work for a welding company. Look how they do business, identify what you can do better and once you have a financial foundation, personally make the leap in starting your own company.
You have the ability to do well in an academic environment, regardless of how you performed in high school. It’s because you went through the world’s greatest Leadership Development Program.
For others that want to maybe step into the corporate setting, then yes, sometimes a college degree is really required to be considered. We are partnered with CollegeRecon. Which is an amazing resource to actually do some studies into what university is right for you, what programs within that university are the best fit for you. And sometimes, guys, I’m not gonna lie four years in the university setting, can help you figure out what you want to do with your life.
I started out as a Political Science Major, and I ended up in business. Now here’s the funny thing, guys, I graduated high school with a 2.9, joined the Marine Corps. I graduated college with a 3.7, I can assure you I did not get smarter during those five years. But the Marine Corps, taught me about drive, commitment, and determination. I applied those principles that the Marine Corps taught me and my GPA went up point eight degrees.
You have the ability to do well in an academic environment, regardless of how you performed in high school, it’s because you went through the world’s greatest Leadership Development Program. So, if college is something that you think would be a good fit for you join CollegeRecon and start researching universities out there that have the major you want, and then take the leap.
Alright, guys. Hope that helps. Mike Sarrialle out.
