What’s a College Degree Worth These Days? (Part II)

By | May 15th, 2014|

I suppose it’s better to have a degree than not, but it’s clearly not the silver bullet it’s often made out to be. There are tons of unemployed people with undergraduate and graduate degrees. I know folks who meet that description and have been looking for work for years with no luck. Ironically, in some cases, the higher your formal level of education the more likely you are to be either unemployed or underemployed (i.e. too many PhDs and not enough full-time faculty positions). But each year more and more young people graduate from high school and ship off to college for all the wrong reasons.
