Beschreibung

Going to university used to be a passport to future success, but that's no longer the case. For some students, it's still a good choice that leads to a successful career after graduation, but for many their degrees are worthless pieces of paper. Choose the wrong program and graduation is more likely to lead to disillusionment and debt than a steady paycheque.

Yet parents, guidance counselors, and politicians still push higher education as if it's the only option for building a secure future. In this book, Ken S. Coates and Bill Morrison set out to explore the many educational opportunities and career paths open to Canadian high-school students and those in their twenties. This book is designed to help young adults decide whether to pursue a degree, enrol for skills training, or investigate one of the many other options that are available.

In this special excerpt, we consider the world outside academia and some real-world options, such as:

1. Volunteering as a Launch Pad

2. Travel: Discover the World

3. Entrepreneurship: Why Wait to Be Your Own Boss?

4. Give Work a Chance

5. Apprenticeship and the Skilled Trades.

This book will help you consider all the options in a clear, rational way.
