“What do you want to be (paid) when you grow up?” Most people don’t consider salary when imagining their dream job. But, as Jessica Santina points out in her article Get a Head Start on High Paying Careers with a Two Year Degree, “People always say that it’s better to love what you do than make lots of money. But let’s face it – the money would be nice, too, and there’s no shame in admitting that.”
Luckily, at any of Virginia’s Community Colleges, the opportunity to explore highly sought after, high wage jobs are endless. From engineers to nurses, a certificate or associates degree from a community college can give you the best of both worlds: a career that you love and pays well.
