I just got a construction job at a water treatment plant for $23/h. I'm 20 years old and planned on starting college for accounting in August. Should I just milk this job as long as possible and go to school later or should i just save up over the next 7-8 mints and go to school?
Entry level accountants already make the same amount you're already making. So whichever you enjoy more I suppose. You're doing light years better than me man. I'm 20 as well working a shit job at 10/hr, and only have 17k saved up.
If you somewhat enjoy your construction job and you like being hands on, milk the career for another year or 2 before going to college.
You would want to graduate while u are still young because there is bias towards hiring young graduates oppose to the 30 year olds
That wont be an issue if u have nepotism on ur side
