Your Pathway to College & Career Options


A college degree does more than help you find a job. College degree holders also earn more money during their lifetimes.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, bachelor’s degree holders make about $1.6 million more during their lifetime
than high school graduates.  
In fact, an analysis by the Center on Education and the Workforce shows that since 1983,
the earnings of bachelor’s degree holders have increased by 34 percent and the earnings of people with advanced degrees
have increased by 55 percent. To the contrary, high school graduates have seen only a 13 percent increase in earnings.
Education clearly pays.  Go To OhioMeansJobs K-12 and check it out!
