The earnings gap between college graduates and those with only a high school diploma continues to widen. Median income for recent graduates reaches $52,000 a year for bachelor’s degree holders. For high school graduates the same age, median earnings are $30,000 a year (Federal Reserve Bank of New York). In a era of economic instability, this gap becomes even wider (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics).
In the post-COVID workplace employers are seeing a powerful jump in the number of job applicants who have earned or completed a degree entirely online. Without proof of higher education, it has become more difficult to secure a high-paying job and additionally, having a college degree puts you ahead of other candidates for jobs where a degree isn’t required.
