  1. There is a lot of talk these days about a college degree being less valuable (and more expensive) than years ago. I totally agree for the following reasons:

    BEFORE - You could learn a lot of what you needed to know for your career in university.
    NOW - Half of what you learn will be obsolete before you graduate.

    BEFORE - You needed to get hired by an employer.
    NOW - You can go it yourself much easier and we're all independent contractors.

    BEFORE - It was about what you know.
    NOW - It's about how quickly you can learn new things.

    The only real value of a degree from a good university seems to be as an indicator of future success.

  2. What you said is so true!
    Now a days education has less significance looking at what you are going to do in the industry, the industry which evolves everyday and transforms to adapt itself.

    Yes, i agree that a degree is just an indicator of the capabilities and the future success.
