Should I go on to get a higher education eventhough I’m currently unemployed??
Hello. I am a 23 year old female who is currently unemployed at the moment and I am going out everyday and doing extensive job search through the Internet and the newspapers. I apply for whatever job is out there and I get no call backs so I decide that I want to go back to school to get a higher education so I want to major in Fashion and Retail Management at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh-online so I registered for class, I filled out the FAFSA form for financial aid and all and I even asked my aunt and cousin for their views on me going back to school to get a degree even though I’m unemployed and have no income. They both told me that I should wait until I can get a job and take care of my personal finances but the thing is that I have no job and no money to take care of my bills and I SERIOUSLY think that by getting a higher education, it would look good on my resume and I can get a good paying career so that I can take care of all my bills and get out of debt. What do you guys think? Should I wait until I get a job or should I go to school so that I can pursue my career???
