BUT WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO GO TO COLLEGE?
A Guide to Success Through Alternative Education
By Harlow G. Unger. Arguing that college isn’t for everyone, the author provides expert advice on other means of launching successful careers. Part one presents the pros and cons of several educational avenues (such as apprenticeships, distance learning, and two-year degree programs) and explains how to pick the best career, receive the necessary training, and get hired. Part two lists career descriptions, along with where the jobs are located, average salaries, and sources of further information from agencies and professional organizations. Appendixes include an employability aptitude test, extensive statistics on job projections for over 700 occupations, and a list of schools around the country that offer cooperative education programs. Indexes. Checkmark. 246 pages. Third Edition. ©2006.
