First, be aware that one reason individuals with degrees may have an advantage over those who do not attend college is that they have focused their efforts on one field or industry. If you do not attend college, but you have a clear career goal in mind, it is essential to begin pursuing that career goal as early as possible. If you are not going to learn your desired job type and industry in a classroom setting, you must take every possible step and opportunity to learn it from the ground up. Your hands-on experience will have to somehow match the education you would otherwise experience in school.
