Competition is fierce in today’s job market, and it all begins with education.
More and more people are realizing that it’s vital to obtain a high quality graduate level education to give yourself a chance at being competitive within the job market. This is why so many people take standardized testing very serious, and specifically GRE prep courses.
You’re probably familiar with standardized testing from your ACT or SAT experience, but the GRE is a completely different ballgame. Just because you did well on either the ACT or SAT, do not assume you will do well on the GRE. The GRE will determine what level of graduate school you will likely be able to get accepted to. TAKE THIS TEST SERIOUS!
The absolute last thing you want to do is be limited on your college options based on your GRE score. Is it possible to make it far in a career if you don’t get accepted to a moderate to high level graduate school? Absolutely it is possible, but life can be much easier if you graduate from a high quality and well respected graduate program.
One very simple reason is that quality companies recruit from quality schools. These companies know that focused, determined, and job qualified graduate students filter through the high quality schools at a higher rate than lower quality schools, and that is why they focus their attention toward those schools.
