Sadly even four years of college or post graduate work is no longer a "lock" on a good job. in a recent N.E.A. report, today's college degrees are now equal to a good high school education back in the nineteen seventies. It makes you wonder just how bad ALL of our educational system has become. :(

It really depends. In *general* your prospects of a good job are improved (and improved more if you study a highly respected subject at an institution with a good reputation) but there's certainly no *guarantee* that you will go on to get a good job.
4 years of college doesn't guarantee a good job for anyone. Good jobs are not easy to find these days and the jobs that are available have so many applicants that the companies are very frugal with starting salaries.
Absolutely not. The times we live in has put a lot of us in really bad situations. In no way am I saying don't go to college. I went graduated with two degrees and I do something that has absolutely nothing to do with them. However, I've learned how to deal and maintain in the real world from that experience. Good luck in your endeavors.
