Is it worth it?

My simple question without going into much detail....

Is obtaining my associates degree even worth my time? Due to unforeseen events, I don’t know that I will have time and money to wait another 3 years to achieve my bachelors, I am already a year into my undergrad. Please no rude comments

    It depends. What will your associates be in?

    Communications

    If you have an associates degree and decide to return to school someday I think it's more likely your credits will transfer. And you can list it on job apps instead of just high school diploma.

    I totally agree. Plus your half way there. Communications is very broad and you can get a lot of similar jobs with out a degree. But the more you learn the more you can advance your skill set. I know many that go into like medical sales or the like and do very well. Biologics is very big now. You can also take online courses to improve a certain skill set as needed. Also doing social media, website work. Writing copy for someone for marketing etc etc can be very profitable. Just looking through Indeed are jobs if you can prove you have the skill sets. You might have to start somewhere at a Lowe tier but can advance yourself on talent not degree.
