What Am I Going To Do When I Grow Up?

What is the value of your degree?

Posted on: May 25, 2009

For you, what is the value of a degree? Where is the value of a degree? When is the reward or success of a degree?

What do you think?  What would it mean to know?

So, what IS the value of a degree? Does it guarantee an educated person? Does it ensure meaningful employment? Any employment? What about success? or happiness?

A lot of people hyper-focus on the completion of the degree.   Often we feel we “have to” complete the degree so we can get on with our lives.  When we do that, we work from the standpoint that education is something we must “get through.”  This deeply affects the quality of our education because if we aren’t engaged, it reduces our ability to articulate our knowledge and transfer our skills to new situations.   This impacts our satisfaction, our happiness, our success…

So, what motivates you?  what is graduation about for you?  …and how are you on planning your career?
