Title: Don't go to University

This is fucking A, man.

But if you do decide to go, try to do a course that is 100% course work and with a good chance of a job at the end of it.

I get the idea of not going into debt for a paper to prove your skills. However, the article author mentions his employer offering courses. Unfortunately most employers don't offer those services and will still only hire with a degree and X years of experience. So we're still in the same boat as before.

As someone who couldn't afford to finish college, I know this problem inside and out. I have skills that I can't prove, so I've been told I wouldn't get hired, all because of a piece of paper that proves it. Until there's a better alternative, most will still run into this problem.

They have uncovered our plan to fill all the Janitorial and fast food jobs with people who majored in Woman's Studies and Art history.

Hi! I don't agree with you. I think everyone needs an education. Even if it takes a long time. It's still worth it. Having a diploma won't hurt you in the future and is a good advantage when you get a job. Moreover, you can work and study at the same time. Working and studying at the same time is difficult, but you can still save time on university assignments by looking at example essays here: https://eduzaurus.com/free-essay-samples/the-hate-u-give/ and be inspired by them for your work. I think you will do well! I wish you the best of luck.

Hello. This is an interesting and controversial topic for discussion. I believe that a person with perseverance and clear goals will definitely succeed. But education is really important, even if only for general development.
