Evil HR Lady Explains the Importance of Getting Your Degree

Go to college. The message has been clear since kindergarten (and for some, even earlier). But, lately, you read things about staggering college loans and people with degrees working fast food counters and checkout lines.

Today's new media focuses on what will get hits and no one clicks on “College students graduate and get entry level jobs, just like every generation before.” No, they click on stories of hardship and horror. The reality is, college graduates still make more money than people without degrees and many stints behind the counter are either short stops on the way to a better career, or are the first steps on a path of retail management. (Don't mock retail management—large store managers can make 6 figure salaries.)

When assessing jobs and employers, be sure to consider the following:

Time Demands-  Doing some comparative research on industries, sectors (for-profit, nfp, private, public) and employers may reveal that similar jobs may come with different work cultures and time demands. It may be worthwhile to explore positions at various types of employers, as time benefits may be worth more to you than higher pay.
