2. Having a graduate degree does not guarantee you a better employee or qualified
Sometimes, more work experience is considered valuable by the company rather than level of education. Companies want to hire people who know what they are doing, and often see the previous work experience of the workers. Having a graduate degree does not guarantee the company had the required skills.

In this regard, we encourage prospective students to come to class, talk to the students there, and feel the environment. This could strengthen their decision whether really want a lecture or not.
Therefore, make sure you're ready and focused for a very special program.

Many graduate programs are not 'forcing' students to become full-time student. Moreover, many online options for college. But generally, the professor and graduate program director agreed to become a full-time graduate student, will give the best results.
He gives the example of the student experience on campus have the opportunity to enter the competition surgical cases, working with fellow students to develop innovative business ideas, and worked as a teaching assistant, as well as in fields relevant to their career interests. According to Schneider, this opportunity is not available if a graduate student or a part-time online program.

While the cost of college tuition in one of the elite in Jakarta will cost approximately USD 4000. Obviously, this could be a consideration to go to college graduate.
For some people, the graduate program is an important step to achieve their career goals, but for others, high cost makes them have to think twice. Even in America, the graduate program tuition fees up to $ 30 thousand.
6. Graduate degree does not guarantee a job with a high salary.
In America, has a graduate degree does not guarantee employment and higher wages, than people with lower education levels. Therefore, before going on to graduate school, do your own research and make sure you know the areas that will be run.
