You catch up with your old friend. They’ve finished their Associate’s degree and some certifications in cybersecurity from the community college. Their company has promoted them to a more stable, higher-paid position.

They reassure you that going back to school, though challenging, fits into their lifestyle as a working adult. You start to feel encouraged, and even start to wonder if instead of finishing your Associate's degree, you could instead earn a Bachelor's degree.

Key Insight

In the first three months of the COVID-19 economic downturn, the unemployment rate for workers with a bachelor’s degree or higher was 7.2%, compared to 12.9% for those with some college but no degree.
