Well, if you feel unprepared for a conventional college, you should still look into taking courses in an online program, or a certification course to ensure that you have a starting point for a good career. :D
I know a bar that won't hire anyone without a college education. Nowadays almost any job that pays a living wage needs some kind of secondary education. If not college than a vocational school or apprenticeship program. Or you could just be a frycook at Mickey D's for 60 years. Your choice.
Here's my experience...I'm 37 and I only attended college for two semesters....and two different colleges at that. I am doing very well with no degree and have received several promotions. I am a software engineer. At this point in my career 15 years), I am finally starting to notice where studies could have come in handy. I am not very well organized and while I am very good at my job and can write business docs better than most if the business folks, I do seem to be lacking in deeper knowledge of how we can make the system more efficient and I have no desire to learn. Lucky for me, I can pass most of the work on to my underlings....
College is not for everyone many other paths in life to get you where you want to be.Think of an income you want to live on, and work around that to help you find a job to get you to your goal income.Good Luck:)
Well it will be hard to get a decent job. If its the life of college u dont like u can always take online courses. Btw, u look a little young (judging by your profile pic) r u even curently going to college?
Take a year off after high school to try working at something you think you'll like. If you want to continue doing that, great. Learn as much as you can "on the job" so you can make the most of your choice. If U don't like working full time, go back to school - either in a trade school or college. Go part time and work part time. U may discover that U like college better than U thought. If U decide to work, do something U like so it doesn't feel like work.
I only went to high school and even though I graduated in the top 20% of my class I can't find a job. You need some kind of secondary education. If you don't want to go to college then go to a trade school. They give you hands on training and then they help you find a job. Good luck with whatever you decide.
You need skills to be attractive to an employer. Think about what you find interesting and see if there is formal instruction, an internship, shadowing for that area. People don't do this, go to college for a general diploma and can't find a job because they haven't developed skills an employer wants.
