Getting graduated is good, as it might help to increase the educational background and can help in better job options. But considering the extent of prevailing unemployment, the dilemma is understandable; whether or not to leave a job which had been procured after so much efforts.

It depends on the interest of the candidate whether they want to do a regular course for the graduation or not. A classroom program or a regular course would put-forth the requirement to quit the existing job. But if the candidate is just interested in adding a graduate degree, they can go for some correspondence courses or distant learning programs or online courses. These courses would not make the candidate at a critical edge of whether or not to leave the job. They can carry out these programs along with their job.

It totally depends on the candidate regarding their priority and mind-set for the job. If they are in a situation where the job is a must and very much required for their living, they can chase their dream through the distant learning programs. If they are more inclined towards education and the job weighs less, then they can go ahead quitting the job and join a course in a regular college. The candidate also need to make sure they get admission for regular courses easily, as the gap in the career line may create a few concern seeking admission at the colleges. The suggestions can provide the pros and cons for both the instances, but the decision always lies with the candidate. Their interest and desire would provide them the courage to march towards the success path.
