Studies prove it: continue your education after high school and you're likely to make more money than people who stop at high school. As an example, a college graduate can afford to buy a large, flat-screen TV in 1“2 months while a non-college graduate might have to work for 3“4 months to buy the same TV.

Skills for Today's Jobs: Have More Options

Today, more jobs than ever before require specialized training or a two- or four-year college degree. More education means more choices, and that means more opportunities for you.

Fast Fact: Of the 20 fastest-growing occupations, more than half require an associate's degree or higher.

Job Security: Keep Working

Your high school diploma is useful. But a college degree increases your chance of employment by nearly 50%. A two-year degree or even some college can have a positive impact on your ability to find and keep a job, too.

Fast Fact: The higher your education level, the higher your chances of finding and keeping a job.

More Benefits: Get the Important Extras

There's more to a job than a paycheck. Jobs for college graduates typically offer more and better benefits than jobs requiring just a high school diploma. These can include health insurance and retirement plans you may not get at lower-skill jobs.
