Why am I investing in college now? Well simply because there are many jobs in this field and I wanted to go to college right away, rather than waiting to go later.
The Advertising and Marketing Communications course offers many opportunities to work with real life employers as well as gives you the skills and a college diploma upon completion. As far as the timing goes, I had a general idea of what kind of field I’d like to work in. Advertising and Marketing Communications gives you a broad skill set allowing you to have a wide range of jobs you can apply for. Some of these jobs include: Market Research, Junior Project Manager, Copywriter, Ad Agencies positions, etc.
Rather than wasting time sitting at home, or working at a dead end job, I wanted to take the opportunity right away. Even if the course doesn’t pay off in the long run, I think the whole experience of college would be worth it. I would still come out with a college diploma and I didn’t waste away a couple years of my life by not doing anything.
For everyone with the question “Should I go to college right now or wait?”: personally, I feel as long as you have a general idea of what you want to do or where you want to go, it’s a great idea! College is a great start to the next chapter of your life and is not a waste of time as long you put the effort into it. Investing in college now is as good a time as any!
