All Degrees Matter


Ever wonder why you should go to college? Feeling overwhelmed on what degree to obtain? I changed degrees three times and I’m so glad that I did. I’m here to pass on my knowledge and experience to those of you who are struggling with what to become and how to go about doing that.

Sample Problem

College at any degree level is ALWAYS a good thing. As I mentioned before, I changed my degree three times, starting with Business then changing to psychology and ending up with a law degree. All of these three degrees, business, psychology and law, have helped me land some very successful jobs. The main reason is that I could show my prospective employers that I could finish a degree, even though I changed it several times, because prospective employers like to see finalization of something. A college degree is always, always a good thing. Even if your degree doesn’t match your chosen field in the end, you have shown dedication, perseverance, and loyalty. Prospective employers love these qualities and by obtained a college degree you can show those qualities.


In conclusion, don’t get stuck on the, “what degree should I obtain?” rather focus on at least taking some college courses and it will come to you as you proceed about what degree you should end up with. I have an Associates Degree in Business, a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a law degree. I kind of circled the mountain a few times before landing on my chosen field. With this background, I can demonstrate to prospective employers that I have a well-rounded knowledge of several important fields and can contribute to their business in those several arenas. I worked for a crisis center for a year and also worked in the public school system educating the children on social issues. The employer that hired me was so impressed with my background and that I had a law degree that she promoted me within months to be a legal consultant and writer for her business. This example shows that my dedication to finishing my degrees, even though I changed my mind several times, didn’t exactly land me a job as a lawyer, but it was pretty close and I had a great career opportunity because of my college background. Anytime, you can put a certification, a degree or even a diploma on your resume, you are leaps and bounds ahead of the game already when a prospective employer reviews your credentials!
