Online Influencer Vs Degree Jobs: Which Is The Better Option?


As a child, the only thing that has been fed to your minds is that the way to achieve success is to achieve a good degree and work until your last breath. Unfortunately here you guys are guided wrong! Let me tell you the former stands true to some extent but with the emerging advancements in the Internet, you need to rethink about your career options!

What I feel is, currently online influencers are blooming their careers with every new follower they get and their career opportunities are not bound to their academic degrees.

An online influencer is a person who has established credibility in a specific industry has access to a huge audience and can persuade others to act based on their recommendations. An online influencer has the tools and authenticity to attract many viewers consistently and can motivate others to expand their social reach. Anyone can be an influencer from a blogger to a celebrity or an online entrepreneur. They must be on a niche to attain widespread credibility.

Some of the most successful influencers haven’t even completed their graduation; however, there are exceptions for sure. On the other hand, degree holders are establishing their careers in the corporate world based on their qualifications and experience, in the old fashion way.

Now coming back to the topic of discussion that which can be the better career option and why one should consider online influencer as a career option rather than high profile degree jobs in the corporate sector. This can be determined by taking the major factors for an ideal career into consideration, which is as follow:

  1. Starting as a fresher

We all are well aware that securing a high profile job in any corporate industry requires two basic needs: A good academic degree and a better work experience. Therefore, it becomes a bit hard for the fresher to land their dream job at the first attempt, most of the candidates have to go through an internship with minimal wages to get the actual job.

On the other hand, you can start your career as an online influencer with or without any degree or experience. It takes a considerable amount of work to establish a career as an influencer though.

  1. Security

When it comes to security both, the options sail together in the ocean of storms. Where one cannot be assured that his online business will keep on marching forward, there is no security in corporate jobs as well. Both depend on work ethics, determination, and hard work.

  1. Advancements

If you are working in the corporate sector, all you want to achieve is a promotion that would higher your wages and your respect in the company. However, the promotions are limited to an extent and when you hit the pinnacle of your promotions, you cannot achieve more but experience.

While as an online influencer, the opportunities are limitless and there is no highest crest known to till date. You can achieve your dream lifestyle in a lesser time compared to other options only when you are working in the right direction.

4. Working Environment

While working at a high profile degree job, you have been allotted your working schedule and you have to work at specific hours on your chairs. On the other hand, as an online influencer, you can work at any hour and any place. You are not bound to follow a work routine. You can go on vacation and work at the same time.

Here are all the factors that you should consider in your mind before opting for a career. Though, you can achieve success in any field as it all comes down to the hard work. However, you should choose your career based on your preferences and skills.
