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

When students graduate from school, they face the dilemma of getting a job directly or going to a university continuously. While there are a variety of beneficial reasons to enter the job market, I would argue that it is better to go to university. In terms of getting a work straight from after school, many adolescents prefer starting to earn money as soon as possible rather than continuing their education. It would mean that they want to afford their own house or start a family and
they can make themselves become more independent.
, in their careers, they can gain real experience and learn practical skills that can help increase their professionalism and lead to promotion easily. Because of some cases, employers are more concerned about employees' abilities rather than their academic backgrounds.
On the other hand
, tertiary education is seen as the ticket to entering certain unique aspects.
For example
, it is impossible to become a lawyer or a doctor without academic qualification.
, those specific fields are more competitive than ever. Sometimes there might be hundreds of applicants bidding for one position. If you do not have a qualification you cannot compete. And while, university or college
offers diverse methods of training their students, let them have a enough

or critical thinking to face the challenge in the workplace to acquisition higher salaries or access better job opportunities. In conclusion, based on those reasons mentioned above, I believe that students could win a better career if the higher education level they had the more options they can choose.
