Some people believe that studying at university or college is the best route to a successful career, while others think that it is better to get a job straight after school. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Upon high school graduation, students face a dilemma of studies or jobs. While some believe it is better to pursue higher education, I agree with the idea that finding jobs is more beneficial to the rest of their careers.


Advocates of pursuing higher education qualifications might believe that possessing profound knowledge and certifications is crucial to a successful career. First, some professions, such as the medical profession or law and justice, require their professionals to obtain relevant qualifications and accreditation. Without obtaining a medical degree or completing their training sessions at medical schools, it is virtually impossible to be considered legal doctors. Second, a wide range of employment opportunities with better compensation and higher salaries are open to those who have acquired a deep understanding of their fields. For instance, mechanical engineers with master's degrees in mechanical engineering in Canada earn an annual wage of around $100,000 compared to their counterparts who have no post-secondary qualifications and earn about $40,000 annually.


However, I believe that high school graduates ought to find jobs right after leaving high school. The primary reason is students who learn to make money at a young age tend to develop an independent life later. This leads them to live on their incomes instead of asking their parents for monthly allowances for their miscellaneous personal spending, and hopefully, they would become self-reliant and self-esteemed adults. Another benefit of working after high school is to prepare valuable hands-on experience of the job for high school graduates. For example, since skilled trades jobs, such as electricians or carpenters, are growing in demand in Canada and not requiring academic certifications, students enrolling in trades majors would have better career prospects in years to come.


In conclusion, even though there are clear benefits of pursuing higher education, I am convinced that getting jobs after graduation has even greater positive impacts on people's lives.

Thank you very much for very useful feedback on my essay!

In Canada, for undergraduate levels, colleges give degrees to those who take 4-year programs, diplomas to those who go for 2 or 3-year programs, and certificates to those who pursue programs that last 1 year or shorter.

Also, I'm not quite sure about the difference between 'certification' and 'certificate'.
