Alternatives to the standard four-year college degree

The route to career success is mapped out here for those who want to forgo the time and expense of a college education and dive directly into the workplace. As college tuitions soar and the job market tightens, many young adults are questioning the value of a college degree. The pros and cons of this path are discussed, as well as the reasons why many students fare poorly in college. In addition, topics such as the cost and value of technical and vocational training, a rundown of careers that do not require a diploma, and working while going to school are examined in detail. Whether high school graduates wish to pursue extensive training for a skilled position, or bring their entrepreneurial enthusiasm to a particular talent or passion, this information will help them achieve their professional objectives.
