Ever wondered what your college degree will do for you in the jobs marketplace once you get out of school? Look at the infographic below: it seems to indicate that the more education you gain, the less it becomes worth, proportionally speaking. It seems that the amount of money (in addition to what you could make with only your high school diploma) increases less and less the higher your degree of education is. Interesting stuff, especially since a recent professor of mine was actually cautioning the class not to “over-educate” themselves formally. He of course did not mean that anyone should ever stop learning — but at some point, extra education, especially for those who take out loans in order to get it, can become a liability instead of an asset.
