@1 Try getting a white collar job at a corporation without a degree. Even a simple book keeper position requires a 4 year degree. To me, most of the positions you do at an office can be trained. However, it is just the way it is and a college degree is the equivalent to a high school degree back in the day.

With that said, kids these days should really look at blue collar jobs. Often times they pay better than what a 4 year degree offers. Many of these jobs will give you the know how and training to one day start your own small business. There really shouldn’t be a stigma against blue collar jobs as they are needed and very important.

Going to college and/or a trade school is beneficial in all ways. Learning is always good. Have to say that the white collar jobs are discriminating against non-degreed workers. There are few jobs and many workers so they can be as prejudiced as they want. They are also disciminating against older workers. Although I used to love contract work, I found that it was harder and harder to find a new contract with age, so I decided to just stay in this FTE job even if the pay is low and management is nasty here. Blue collar jobs are great too. Would have loved to check out electrician work. Whatever it is one does, you can never go wrong with being educated by completing college work, trade school work, etc. Giving your mind something to do is a way to keep brain age away — Reading, crafting, doing puzzles, working….all good for the brain.

I would re-write the title to say:
“Free workshop on college admission and financial aid at the Concord Library”

As it is, it sounds like someone is giving away free college admissions.
