Why Go to College? Career/Major Thinking for Teens

June 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

- Free
Heading to college

Why does anyone go to college? We ask teens this question all the time. The answer they give us is “to get a better job.” However, so many teens embark on the college search process without taking time to consider careers and majors–the two things that should be driving the process if “a better job” is the goal.

What do you need to know right now, while your teen is still in high school? There are steps parents can take to help their teens with career and major decisions which are right around the corner.

Join At The Core Founder and CEO Beth Probst and Director of Career Management and Corporate Relations for The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business and At The Core facilitator Allison Jones for this FREE, lively, and thought-provoking discussion for parents and students grades 8 & up.

Webinar topics include:

    • How can a student really learn about CAREERS and tie them to college MAJORS?
    • Tips we can share from our work with teens and families
    • What employers and colleges have to say about making a successful transition to the working world
    • Resources and tools your family may value

As parents, we understand the worry. We worry about whether or not our child will get into college. As professionals who witness students AFTER they enter college, we know how quickly that “college decision” shrinks in importance and the real work of college (in a selected major…with an eye toward a first job target/career) kicks in.

Parents and students are encouraged to watch the webinar together. Register now for our webinar!
