Episode 13 Choosing a College Major Trade or Career-80% of College Students Change Their Degree at Least Once
50% of high school seniors have no clue what they want to do after high school. 47% think they do. But 85% of college students change their major at least once! This causes a loss of credit hours and usually an extension of their time in college, costing more in tuition and fees. And since 80% of working adults are unhappy in their jobs, it's probably safe to say they never figured out what their best career in life really is.Join me as I interview Dr. Moses McCutcheon as he tells us about a system that hones in on that best life career for your child. Believe it or not, the earlier you start the better! Why? Because then you can help your teen craft their high school years with more focus and passion.
