The college hunt can be exhilarating, but it can also be confusing. One way to help quell that confusion is to establish which careers best suit your skills, interests and talents. If you can pinpoint this before you begin touring and evaluating schools, you'll be able to investigate the programs available, job placement rates and alumni statistics for your intended field of study at each specific school. This not only allows you to streamline the college search, but can save you money down the road. About one-third of college students change their majors, typically requiring additional time in school, as well as a much higher price tag. Establishing your career plan up-front helps decrease the odds that you'll start college in the wrong field of study.
