Researching schools can cause a severe case of tunnel vision. Between gathering info, planning steps, and checking off boxes, it’s easy to forget that school isn’t the only goal; for many of us, it’s also the means to our future career and life goals.
Besides, if we don’t know why we’re going to school, it’s harder to find the motivation to get through the tough tests of college (both literal and figurative!), and connect it to the real world later on. New insights from the Strada-Gallup Education Consumer Survey show that students value their education more when it relates to what they eventually want to do with it. So to help you think about your future goals—and build your education around them—we’re launching new expert content all about careers.
Check out our brand new "Careers" channel within the “Articles” section for advice on how to connect your interests to major and career decisions, spotlights on different occupations from the career experts at Roadtrip Nation, and actionable insights that’ll help you figure out—and then move towards—your ultimate aspirations.
As always, we continue to do our best to create content that guides you to the best education, so if you’re interested in a topic that you don’t see on the site, please contact us! We’d love to hear from you.
