Military experience vs college degree? I have debated this question lately after I read Aaron Clarey’s “Worthless” e-book on my kindle. In my debate that was going on in my head I tried to see the pros and cons about both military experience as well as college experience. In the end I decided that it is better to have military experience rather than a college experience and I will tell you why?
If you are deciding whether or not you want a college or military experience you will need to buy Aaron’s book “Worthless”
The benefits of the military:
The military can provide many benefits and opportunities to its new members. While you are in the military you will learn responsibility, self confidence and team work. Not only that but you will also learn your vocation by going to an “A” school and learning your job at the same time once you are done with school you will quickly be put to work in your chosen field where you will gain valuable experience which when you decided to get out you could be able to use in the civilian world.
All this is done without taking out loans which you will be paying for the rest of your life. Getting on the job experience is more preferred than a college degree. All a college degree does is to get you through the door and that’s it while experience can get you through the door and into your vocation right away.
Colleges and universities do not prepare you for the real world. No matter how much they try they cannot simulate reality. SO you go through your college years and get your degree only to find out that no one wants to hire you or pay you a wage high enough to live off because you have no real life experience. This is something colleges and universities fail to see.
Experience is what employers are looking for! Sure education is nice to have but in the end experience always wins out. Which is why I would much rather choose to go and get the military experience and then maybe if you want go get that college degree. It makes sense!
Know the real reason why colleges and universities do not teach real life skills by reading Aaron Clarey’s “Worthless” e-book you will know why!
People will say that the military is the wrong path to choose because you will be risking your life in return for getting the experience. That’s true but most of our lives are empty shells and as a person who was young once I could tell you that my life was not boring anymore and not to mention you get respect from your peers, even the older people will sit down and chat with you and respect you. A college degree does not give you respect experience does.
You do not get what I said above with a college degree. Unlike men and women who served people with college degrees come a dime a dozen. The reason why I say that is because thousands of people come out of college the same way. Once they graduate they still do not have the skills to get a good paying job instead you are going from one interview to the next going against other people who are at the same level as you. They have a degree but no experience.
Learn what degrees you should be studying! Invest in a copy of “Worthless” by Aaron Clarey
Academics will tell you that having a degree will open doors and bring you success. Sure that was true many years ago when there were not many college degree holders. Unfortunately now the college degree field is saturated with thousands of newly graduates. There are so many that salaries begin to come down because there are too many people competing for the same slot.
Even if you have a college degree they will still not give you the opportunity to handle your own. Instead they will give you jobs like gophering, filing etc, while the veteran will quickly jump in and work because he or she knows how to handle responsibility because of the years of on the job training.
My personal recommendation is that you get the experience first then go and get a degree that worthwhile preferably something in the STEM fields. Don’t know what STEM is then why not invest on yourself and get Aaron’s book “Worthless” trust me it will be the best thing you will do for you future.
Military experience vs college degree! i can tell you that the military experience will outweigh a college degree every time.
