How can you stay sellable in an uncertain job market? Remember the 2008 market
crash? That wasn’t so long ago. People lost their homes, established companies went bankrupt, and the government seemed at a loss of ideas while hundreds of thousands of people lost their jobs. Can this happen again? What can you do to secure a roof over your head (for most New Yorkers it’s a ceiling) and bread and butter?
One of the ways to stay competitive is by procuring an undergraduate degree as a high school diploma’s value is increasingly diminished. Employers are skeptical about the quality of the high school education attained by graduates. The average lifetime earnings for a high school graduate is $1,531,400 in comparison to bachelor’s degree nearly $3 million (Fastweb, 2009). That’s a differential of nearly 2 million dollars! Is it really worth investing in a bachelor’s degree? The astronomical cost of an education in the United States is mind boggling. We can show you how to acquire a quality education at an affordable cost while integrating faith and learning.
