Saddest moments as a career counselor
One of the most insightful articles we have seen about college is written by Marty Nemko, a career counselor. It is too bad that other “career counselors” are so narrowly focused on getting poor students in college.
Nemko says: “Among my saddest moments as a career counselor is when I hear a story like this: 'I wasn't a good student in high school, but I wanted to prove that I can get a college diploma. I'd be the first one in my family to do it. But it's been five years and $80,000, and I still have 45 credits to go.'"
