Consequently, I would be more qualified to handle a particular job. II. Second Main Point: Make connections. A. Supporting Detail 1: When a person is in college, someone gets to meet people that are in the same field. Consequently, one gets to talk with them and know more about the field and the challenges one will experience in the workplace. One will also learn the importance of working as a team. B. Supporting Detail 2: People gain more social experience when they are in college. People learn to be more mature in college and learn more about the real world including the challenges they will experience.III. Third Main Point: Making more money. A.
