Not everyone truly benefits from a college education. More than 38 million adults have started college, investing a significant amount of time and money, but have no tangible degree to show for it. This is largely because universities don’t necessarily equip students with the tools necessary to make wise decisions about whether to pursue a degree, what degree to pursue and how to achieve it affordably.
Did you graduate college but find yourself stuck in a job you despise? You can turn the corner, but your path starts with you! Ask yourself a few questions. What are you good at? What genuinely interests you? What experience do you have, as it pertains to this interest? What do you enjoy doing? The O*Net Interest Profiler is a service that can help you define your interests and show you how those interests relate to the world.
After you do some thorough thinking and soul search, you may want to enroll in a traditional college or university, massive open online course, trade school or community college. You could also consider prior learning assessment.
