A new year is a great time for taking a look at how you’re doing. And, sure, physical health is an important part of that. But what about your career goals?
If a lot of people are honest, the life they thought they’d have—or the one they once said they want—isn’t exactly how it’s turned out. A big part of that is because of education.
Studies suggest only 46 percent of Americans complete college once they start—that gives the United States the worst college dropout rate of any developed country.
Even among the people who earned a bachelor’s degree, you’re likely not following the same path you planned. That’s why experts estimate just 27 percent of graduates work in a field or industry related to their college major.
