I teach an evening photography class.  Since we don't talk about software, almost all of the students shoot RAW.  I improve a lot of the images in front of the class by some simple tweaks.  You could do these tweaks in your camera prior to the shot, but to my mind this takes more skill that doing them afterwards.

My feeling is that most images can be improved by tweaking.  Simple software will do this for you, so shoot jpegs.  However, I try to push Lightroom on people.  If you go that route, then there is no advantage to shooting jpegs since editing RAW images is so easy.
