Grad School: To go or Not to go

Your Career Path

What do you want to do? If it’s a profession you absolutely, positively must pursue, and it requires advanced education, then you’re probably an excellent candidate for further education.

“You go to graduate school to become an expert in a certain area or to be a professional in certain industries, like law, medicine, or engineering,” explains Cindy Parnell, director of career services at Arizona State University.

However…

Not every profession requires an advanced degree, so do some research on potential career opportunities before committing to more education.

Motivation

Can’t think of what else to do next? Don’t think of graduate school as a way to hide from the job search.  “Don’t go for the sake of going to graduate school. Go because you’re passionate and you want to develop your skill set in a certain area.”
