The Truth about finding a Career…
When looking for a career most people today think that obtaining a college degree is the only way to get a good paying job. With college attendance continuing to grow at a rapid rate, could the college path be a mistake?
The average college student will graduate with over $25,000 worth of debt and take six months to find a job, after graduation. There are over 1.2 million people with a bachelors degree or higher level of formal education currently unemployed right now in the United States. Out of those that do find work, 73% of them do not find a job that is closely related to their degree. And with the average grad earning less than $50,000 a year it takes them over 20 years to pay off their student loans.
What’s the answer? Getting a career in the skilled trades like plumbing. The trades are struggling to fill good paying jobs and with nearly 50% of the tradesmen due to retire in the next 5 to 10 years, the problem will only get worse. Alpha Tradesmen Academy trains people the skills they need to get a job in the plumbing industry.
