You have graduated from college, obtained a diploma and are now able to work in your profession. What other career options do you have? What career trajectory should you choose without making a mistake? Read about it in our material.
Get a job
You can get a job with a Secondary Vocational Education (SPE) diploma if you haven't yet started your career during your studies.
The average salary of college graduates is approximately 36,000 rubles, and that of bachelor's graduates is nearly 33,000. Jobs in manufacturing, healthcare, social services, IT and consulting are the fastest to be filled.
And the easiest jobs are for medical professionals (91% of graduates are hired), aviators and rocket and space technology specialists (64%), IT specialists (45%) and information security specialists (42.0%).
Going to college
Many people go to college to avoid taking exams or to get an early start in their careers. At the same time, after graduation, it is possible to enter a state-financed university in any field of study. This means that you can continue your studies in the same field, add new knowledge to your diploma or change your field of study completely. You have to pass the university entrance examination before you can enrol. We have written about how to enter a university after college in this article.
Moreover, it is possible to enrol in an accelerated study programme, that is, to shorten the period of study. This option is available if you have decided to enroll in higher education in a specialty related to the one in which you studied in college. You need to provide the school's academic department with a list of courses you have taken, so that they can carry them forward.
Continuation at college, free of charge
If you have a vocational/employee training programme, you can enrol in upper secondary school again and study for free. This is stipulated by law.
