Will a Degree help you get a job?

Posted on February 28, 2014 at 7:48 am

University can give people a sense of freedom and control over their own destiny; it’s a time when you move out, interact with different people and get a taste of the working world. But the question is “will it get you a job and more opportunities in the long run?”

More and more people are earning themselves degrees, and that can be seen as a good thing and a bad thing at the same time because it means more competition for places. One problem with a degree is the fact that you may come away finding yourself stuck in the middle of being under qualified and over qualified at the same time.

A degree is not usually enough to automatically guarantee you a job and work experience is still vital in many job sectors. Generally speaking you can open yourself up to more possibilities with a degree, but it’s all about motivation and dedication, and working your way up the ladder, which is usually the case for the majority of jobs out there in the UK, and not just graduate jobs.
