Generations of Americans have been told that college graduates earn more than non-college graduates. This may have been true in 1998, but is it still true in 2018? In Seattle’s booming IT industry 25% of employees don’t have a Bachelor’s! Today’s college grads often leave school with a student loan burden so massive it effectively wipes out their earnings’ advantage for the next decade. Too many also end up in jobs in which a 4-year degree isn’t required.

For that reason you need to ask yourself: Is college worth it for you? In this seminar we discuss the important personal and situational factors to consider and the variety of options available in post-secondary decisions.

As a part of our work, on Saturday, October 6, 2018The Charlemagne Institute (Intellectual Takeout’s parent organization) is inviting ALL middle school & high school students as well as any young adults who are seeking vocational and professional guidance. This event is free to the public and requires pre-registration at:
