The reality is: a college degree is no guarantee for a job.
Students are starting to look for career advice earlier because of the urgency the economy has created. I've done career coaching with students in high school and college to help them determine a target (career choice) before a school of choice. Why apply to a college that doesn't have the field you want?
College should be fun, but you're not paying those big bucks to NOT prepare for the real world.
The earlier you find a career you're passionate about & love, the better prepared you'll be to be successful in it!
