We’ve All Been There Before
Every manager or executive was once a student headed to college. Today many look back and say, “I wish I knew this before I went to college. I probably would have done things differently.” Don’t let this happen to your child.
This year more than usual I have been approached by several parents seeking guidance for their college age students. Their concern is that it’s almost time for college and their student is just not clear on what they should be studying in college, not just for the academics, but also to prepare them to get a job after graduation.
College First, Then Career Myth
This career piece is often missing when choosing a college as many parents and their high school students focus on college first, then later consider a career.
However, when your student chooses a college based on a career they are interested in they can focus their studies on that career during college and be prepared to get a job right out of college doing something they love and build a strong future.
