In the next few years, parents can expect to spend more than $40,000 per year on their child’s college tuition. While that number may seem frightening, it is not as grim as the statistics that predict their child’s chances of actually finding a job after graduation. Only about 20% of employers believe college graduates are ready for the workforce, and only 40% of graduates will find a job that will ensure their financial independence. The good news is that with the right advice, parents can turn their pricey investment into one that truly yields a high return and a rewarding career for their son or daughter. Professor Coplin offers honest advice for parents who want their child’s college experience to ensure future success– both financially and emotionally. Parents will learn how to help their college-bound student:

• treat career services as their best ally

• explore a variety of career paths

• realize the importance of the unpaid internship

• and more.

A unique and no-nonsense blueprint, 25 Ways to Make College Pay Off will show parents how to mentor and guide their child through college so that he or she gets the most out of the experience and leaves prepared for the real world.
