Future Trends to Consider

If the income boost isn’t enough to convince you a college education is a good investment, DegreeHolder.com recommends considering future trends. Economists have found the availability of blue collar jobs is shrinking.

As the workforce has evolved over the past 50 years, so has the job market. With these marketplace changes and technological advances, companies need for blue collar workers is on the decline. The jobs hardest hit are clerks, telemarketers, farmers and production positions. This means, there will be more competition for fewer job opportunities. And keep in mind these opportunities pay less too.

Does investing in a college education involve sacrifice? Absolutely. This can be especially difficult for individuals in a lower income bracket already struggling to make ends meet. However, student loans and other financial resources make it realistic to complete a bachelor’s degree or higher. And, statistically, it’s proven to provide long-term financial benefits that outweigh the initial investment.
