When I started The Learning Consultants around the turn of the century…. literally… 2002… the “college” decision was tangentially part of the career discussion. But it definitely was not at the forefront. The college experience, “fit” for certain colleges, and other subjective college issues (big v. small, city v. rural, fraternities-no fraternities) dominated the discussion.
Now, many of my discussions center around “collegecareer”, a mixture of the two.
College is an enormous investment. Nothing wrong with working retail but too many parents have come to us for career counseling after they spent 100-200k on college.
Our career counseling expertise is deeper than that of any other educational consultancy in Connecticut.
We can help you with the CollegeCareer decision.
