Why does anyone go to college? We often hear "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. 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. 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, and more.
Testing! ACT, SAT, PSAT, digital exams, test optional movement, merit scholarships…testing is BY FAR the one topic we field the most questions about.
