There was a time where education was a priority for employers but now things are different in the work environment. Employers are hiring workers who have a diverse set of skills such as leadership, communication, technology knowledge, education, and much more.
These skills are necessary but earning a higher level of education is the most important because there are more opportunities to get the career we desire. Always remember that as soon as you earn your degree, you may or may not get the career you are searching. It will take time to get there but you will get there eventually. Be patient, love yourself, and find out that makes you happy.
