For a few generations we’ve been told that college is the path financial security. And this is largely borne out by statistics; census data tells us that the average high school graduate makes $35,000 a year, while a college graduate will take home closer to $54,000 annually. However, as with all statistics, there is the rule and there are the exceptions. Pathways to success that don’t include a Bachelor’s degree do exist. Examples include Associate’s Degrees and Certificate programs, apprenticeships, and career and trade schools. For more information on these options, check out the latest blog post on the College Coach Insider blog.
