Once again, the issue of student loan debt is in the news. The angle this time, universities suing students over unpaid loan debt. But what continually goes unaddressed is the fact that nationally, students change their majors 3-5 times and each “change of the mind” results in approximately one semester of extended time for degree completion. Multiply that times 3-5 and you have gone from a 4 year graduation plan to 6 years spent on a 4 year degree.
Determining a career path and choosing a “good fit” college require tremendous effort and diligence. I am continually baffled by human nature. We spend hours searching for the perfect car or house, but typically far less time picking a career or college. Often we are simply influenced by where our friends go, what our parents do for a living, or the latest craze on TV and in the media. So it is no surprise that 60-85% of Americans dislike their chosen field of work.
But there is a far better method.

Part of the problem with student loan debt is the fact that university costs are rising. But you don’t have to fall into the trap of the 6 year graduation group and go broke in the doing. And you don’t have to fall into the 60-85 % of disillusioned American workers. Love what you do!
