Virtually everyone in our culture spends the major portion of his or her life preparing for a career. Choosing one’s field of work is one of the most important decisions of a lifetime. It is as important for students who plan on going to college as it is for those who plan on going directly into the workforce after high school. Both time and money can be saved by choosing a college and/or a college career pathway that leads to a satisfying field of work.
