The Community College Career Track: How to Achieve the American Dream Without a Mountain of Debt Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Get a good education without massive debt, and enter a field that's actually hiring

In coming years, millions of great jobs will be opening up in growth areas like advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, health care, information technology, and sustainable energy. These jobs can pay as well as, or much better than, the average income for four-year college graduates. They generally offer high levels of day-to-day satisfaction. And the path to all of them begins in the community colleges. In The Community College Career Track, Tom Snyder gives young people and their parents, as well as mid-life career changers, a practical, inspiring guide to taking that path and completing it successfully.

The old model of a bachelor's degree leading to a good job and career has broken down for large numbers of young people, many of whom graduate college only to work in a career that doesn't require a degree. Meanwhile, millions of productive American white collar and blue-collar workers have been laid off and need retraining for second careers. This book helps you find a new way forward.

  • Offers insights on how to save money over a lifetime through an affordable college education that provides high-paying jobs
  • Author Tom Snyder is the president of Ivy Tech Community College, Indiana's statewide community college system and the largest singly accredited community college system in the country

Author Tom Snyder has confronted the education-jobs mismatch from both sides, first as a highly successful business executive and now as an award-winning educator. Follow his efficient, affordable, and rewarding path to a great career and a satisfying life.

Synopsis:

Get a good education minus the debt and enter a field that's actually hiring.

In coming years, millions of great jobs will be opening up in growth areas like advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, health care, information technology, and sustainable energy. These jobs can pay as well as, or much better than, the average for four-year liberal arts graduates—and offer high levels of career satisfaction. And the path to all of them begins in community college. In The Community College Career Track, Tom Snyder gives young people and midlife career changers a practical guide to taking that path and completing it successfully. You'll learn:

  • Why everyone should consider a science, technology, engineering, math (STEM), or health care related career, and why community college is the best place to start
  • How to use community college as the smart start to a bachelor's degree
  • Great, lucrative careers that only require two-year degrees or one-year professional certificates
  • How to prepare for college level work whether you're in high school or you're changing careers
  • How to thrive in a community college

Synopsis:

The path to increasing numbers of today's and tomorrow's best jobs runs through the community colleges. In The Community College Career Track, Tom Snyder gives young people and their parents, as well as mid-life career changers, a practical, inspiring guide to taking that path and completing it successfully.

The old model of a bachelor's degree leading to a good job and career has broken down for large numbers of young people. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, of the college graduates under 25 who have a job, 49 percent do not have a job that requires a bachelor's degree. Meanwhile, millions of productive American white collar and blue collar workers have been laid off and need retraining for second careers.

The good news that Tom Snyder has to share is that millions of great jobs will be opening up in coming years in growth areas like advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, health care, information technology, and sustainable energy. At the same time, traditional trades increasingly require an ability to handle sophisticated technology, whether in automotive repair or in environmentally sustainable construction practices and building systems.

These jobs can pay as well as, or much better than, the average income for four-year college graduates. They generally offer high levels of day to day satisfaction. Many of them lead to significant levels of responsibility. And once again, the path to all of them begins in the community colleges.

"Synopsis" by , Get a good education minus the debt and enter a field that's actually hiring.

In coming years, millions of great jobs will be opening up in growth areas like advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, health care, information technology, and sustainable energy. These jobs can pay as well as, or much better than, the average for four-year liberal arts graduates—and offer high levels of career satisfaction. And the path to all of them begins in community college. In The Community College Career Track, Tom Snyder gives young people and midlife career changers a practical guide to taking that path and completing it successfully. You'll learn:

  • Why everyone should consider a science, technology, engineering, math (STEM), or health care related career, and why community college is the best place to start
  • How to use community college as the smart start to a bachelor's degree
  • Great, lucrative careers that only require two-year degrees or one-year professional certificates
  • How to prepare for college level work whether you're in high school or you're changing careers
  • How to thrive in a community college

"Synopsis" by , The path to increasing numbers of today's and tomorrow's best jobs runs through the community colleges. In The Community College Career Track, Tom Snyder gives young people and their parents, as well as mid-life career changers, a practical, inspiring guide to taking that path and completing it successfully.

The old model of a bachelor's degree leading to a good job and career has broken down for large numbers of young people. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, of the college graduates under 25 who have a job, 49 percent do not have a job that requires a bachelor's degree. Meanwhile, millions of productive American white collar and blue collar workers have been laid off and need retraining for second careers.

The good news that Tom Snyder has to share is that millions of great jobs will be opening up in coming years in growth areas like advanced manufacturing, biotechnology, health care, information technology, and sustainable energy. At the same time, traditional trades increasingly require an ability to handle sophisticated technology, whether in automotive repair or in environmentally sustainable construction practices and building systems.

These jobs can pay as well as, or much better than, the average income for four-year college graduates. They generally offer high levels of day to day satisfaction. Many of them lead to significant levels of responsibility. And once again, the path to all of them begins in the community colleges.
