How Parents Can Help Their Children
Select the Best-fit College, Major, and Career
Hosted by: Anna Sergunina, CFP®
Guest commentator: Beth Probst,
Have you seen the cost of college today? It’s stunning, and that realization prompts a few natural questions. Is it worth it? Why does anyone go to college, anyway?
Our guest, Beth Probst, Founder and CEO of At The Core, has inspired parents of college-bound students to think strategically about how to select the best-fit college, major, and career so they don’t end up wasting precious time, energy, and money.
She has asked thousands of students this question: “Why does anyone go to college?” Almost every kid says, “To get a better job.” The value and the purpose surrounding the huge investment become key topics of discussion for every family considering the college path. We’ll discuss practical tasks for high school students to complete before the end of high school to move toward college with much more confidence and clarity, the emotional side and how students can learn about themselves, the ROI for why go to college, and much more.
