Educated Quest Career Corner

While many college-bound students have ambitions for further education, over two-thirds of bachelor’s degree graduates are likely to go to work after graduation day. Some graduate better prepared for work than others. They’ve chosen the right courses, built a good resume, developed the right skills, and learned how to network as early as possible. I can’t tell you how many parents expect their children to graduate college ready to start a full-time job. That’s why I started the Educated Quest Career Corner. I wanted to let you know how schools “do business,” to help students get the jobs they want.

Some colleges help students on their journey to work or further education better than others. The Educated Quest Career Corner helps students consider majors and careers, and how to prepare for them. My college counseling services  will you further insights, personalized to your student’s and your family’s interests and needs. Have a comment on any of these posts?

An engineering degree at Georgia Tech is a great credential

Engineering Degree + Extra Skills = Better Career

I never considered pursuing an engineering degree, even though I am the son of an engineer. An engineering degree requires a love for math and science that I never had through my K-12 education. I did okay in these subjects. Thankfully, no one pressured me to major in them. Unfortunately, […]
