Setting Graduation Date
Setting graduation date to graduate on time should be part of your college plan from day one. The point is to get that degree as quickly as possible and save yourself money. Your five years by your competitors four or three years with a similar background is not going to earn you any brownie points unless you have some great job experience to compensate.
Job Market Is Highly Competitive
The job market is saturated with college degree holders. Degree holders outweigh job vacancies in most fields. Hence to secure most job positions you need to be the best out of the pool of candidates in all evaluated categories including the amount of time spent to complete your college degree.
Know Your Classes Schedule
Become very knowledgeable about the classes you need to complete to graduate on time. This might sound simple like no big deal, but don’t depend solely on your advisers to tell you about the classes you need to complete for your degree.
It’s Your Responsibility
While advisers are responsible for guiding you remember this is primary your journey, not theirs. So make sure you have a solid plan about what classes you are going to take and when.
Make it a priority to find out which semesters each class is offered and the prerequisite for each class before each semester begins. Taking the wrong classes will dramatically delay your graduation date and this is one of the details employers will notice on your résumé.
Be Responsible For Your Education
So with all that said just be responsible for your education. Earning a degree is very expensive considering all the money and time needed. So ensure you plan and work hard to get something valuable out of it because you can’t get a refund of money or time if your result is unsatisfactory.
