Research reveals that, on average, it takes college students over six years to get a “four-year degree.” Approximately 75% of students change their major at least once — and many change two or three times — which often results in one to two additional years of college, as much as 70% of student loan debt, the inability to get internships, and the inability to get a good job in their chosen field. PATH2 offers a solution.
Most people do college backwards: They choose a college, then arbitrarily choose a major which they might change 1 to 3 times. As graduation approaches, they try to choose a career. Often, they take whatever job they can get — which, almost half the time, didn’t even require a college degree! PATH2 helps people reverse that order so students and parents can save time while reducing stress and student loan debt.
PATH2 shares five key benefits of gearing your college path around your career, and not the other way around: enjoy classes more and get better grades, graduate in 4 years or less, get internships and work experience while you’re still in school, and get a great job in a career you’re passionate about.
Whether you have been working in one of the many professions impacted by global changes like increased automation or the pandemic — or you’ll no longer be in the military and need to secure civilian employment, you have job options that you may not even be aware of. PATH2 empowers people to choose their next career wisely.
With student loan debt totaling more than $1.5 trillion in the U.S. — and many families needing to tap into their children’s college fund just to cover daily living expenses — there is no better time to plan ahead in order to minimize college debt. PATH2 offers fresh, practical guidance.
Want a new job or even a new career? Plenty of jobs match your skillset perfectly, but you might not be aware some of them exist. PATH2 helps people explore career options and make informed decisions, so they can create a life they love.
