Investing in your education takes a little bit more flexibility than in years past. According to a Georgetown University study in 2015, nearly twenty-five percent of college students are taking on a full-time job and a packed course load. Nineteen percent of students even add raising a family to the balancing act. Northeast Wisconsin Technical College- Luxemburg Career Coach Sarah Scharenbrock says colleges are trying to be just as flexible as their prospective students need them to be.
Investing in education often leads to more lifetime earnings potential according to The College Board, which shows the typical Associate Degree holder earning 24 percent more and the typical Bachelor’s Degree holder earning 66 percent more than a high school graduate.
