Can it happen that in a workplace an employee who is an undergraduate, though rich in experience, be equally promoted to a position requiring a degree holder employee? From a Weber bureaucratic point of view, this is not allowed yet this happens rarely and in special cases. If the company is family-owned, this could possibly happen. At any case given this scenario and the reality that a large number of graduates remain unemployed stimulates some people to rethink whether or not it still makes sense to go to a university to earn a degree?

Present day technology also introduced new working environment where hiring focuses on individual skills (particularly in the playing field of IT professionals) rather than on educational attainment. There would be occasions when you will find undergraduates earning more compared to degree holders. But this should not be conclusive that getting a degree is already a thing of the past.

In fact, trends in the educational system have adopted new paradigms that are expected to expand and give more formal education to people who want to earn a degree but are unable to do so for one reason or another. This new educational paradigm is known as the long distance learning offered by open universities. Here, despite the fact that professor and learner are worlds apart through time and space, the learning system still works on a flexible platform where the independent learner studies at any time, anywhere and at a pace he or she chooses. This is made possible through the advance media technology. However, much is relied on the individuals strong will or determination to manage his learning and discipline to complete the educational program.

At this point, getting a degree is still highly recommended at all costs whether you get it from a traditional or from an online-distant learning system. Essentially, what is important is how you used your education in establishing your career path whether you are supply teacher, secretaries, janitors or CEOs. When applying for a job or a position in the real world, employers usually start filtering applicants by choosing those with earned degrees from the undergraduates. Definitely, it gives you leverage over undergraduates in most cases. Looking at the academic realm or any traditional work environment particularly with bureaucratic organizations, the level of competition is based on earned educational degree. The higher educational degree you have, the higher chances of getting employed, promoted and land to a supervisory level position. Getting a degree from a school also corresponds to an unexplained esteemed psyche perceived by many in society. For example, would you want your practicing medical doctor just be an experienced doctor and not a degree holder in medicine?

Education is one of the vital factors that make life easy. Elders always remind the youth that education is the only treasure that cannot be stolen from them. So if the opportunity is there, grab it! Sometimes opportunities in life comes only once in a lifetime.
