A lot of people reach out to me. They needs jobs. But they’re asking about school. Education is a pathway to employment, understanding and enjoyment. Still, there’s a time to leave school behind and live your life.
When people come asking for career advice, I always encourage them to define goals and look for the easiest and least costly ways to reach those goals. Since graduate school is neither easy nor cheap, I don’t encourage anyone to attend unless there’s a special and compelling reason (such as a desire to become a college professor, one of the few jobs that absolutely requires a graduate degree).
