Don't Fall For It!: "The Truth About For-Profit Career Institutions" by Carlos Chavez

If you are one of the many people thinking of changing or improving your current situation and lifestyle, you may have considered enrolling in a for-profit, post-secondary career training institution. These are the schools that you often see advertised on TV, in local newspapers, and on the Internet. But due to bad business practices and deceptive approaches, these schools have created an environment that puts profit over competence, leading thousands of students to suffer financial and educational losses as a result.

This book was written with a specific objective: to create awareness of for-profit, post-secondary career training institutions. It is based on my own experiences working for many years at these kinds of institutions. One of the institutions I worked for is regarded today as the biggest educational failure in the United States, and possibly the world. Bad business practices and deceptive approaches, coupled with unqualified instructors, created an environment that put profit over competence and led to the collapse of the company. Thousands of students suffered financial and educational losses as a result.

About the Author

Carlos Chavez is a college teacher who enjoys sharing his passion and dedication to students and the public in general. He takes pride in making a change by giving back his knowledge and expertise to others. With a combination of more than 26 years of professional experience, he shares his knowledge in various fields and topics including health, the dental profession, and other areas, including the business field. His main motivation is helping the community, including students in search of a better life through education, but he also enjoys helping anyone in need of support and guidance. When he is not inspiring learners by sharing his professional expertise, he is most likely spending time with his young son and his pack of playful Labrador Retriever dogs. He also holds a black belt in martial arts, specifically in Tae Kwon Do, and this skill brings him confidence, self-control, respect to others, and skills in self-defense.

Carlos is a graduate of California State University, East Bay, and enjoys teaching at community and private colleges. He is currently working on earning a Doctorate of Philosophy degree (Ph.D.) in Health Sciences. As a passionate educator, he believes strongly in the importance of instilling quality education in all adults-both those with educational goals and those still unsure of what their educational goals are. The bottom line: he cares about the success of anyone in search of an education or career that will eventually lead to better living and perhaps to the fulfillment of a bigger dream.
