Experience is the best teacher. According to a number of people, it is important for high school graduates to either work or travel first before entering college. This essay will explain both the advantages and disadvantages of this practice as well as my personal opinion.

Travelling can be a perfect idea for an undecided students as this will help them see the world in different angles. They will be able to compare a lot of things as well as opening their minds about many posibilities they can do in life. They will be able to meet various people from their travel where they can get inspiration, hence, making it easier for them to choose which career and profession they would like to become.

Working before entering college can also be beneficial for a student. Aside from getting a work experience, they will also be able to save a lot of money which they can use when they start studying. Getting a degree in college costs an arm and leg and it is very important that a student is financially stable in order to complete all semesters.

However, travelling can be very expensive at times and some students do not observe the purpose of such priveledge and instead use this time for leisure only. Moreover, working before entering college can also delay the students time to finish their major.

In a nut shell, travelling helps the student in making a decision while working can give them savings to use when they start in college. Nevertheless, not knowing their purpose and delaying time are the two most common disadvantage of this practice. In my opinion, traveling and working will only become a successful idea if the students are aware of their limitations.
