CEO Speaks at Mount Wachusett Community College Admitted Student Day
Craig Powell, ConnectEDU's Founder and CEO, was the keynote speaker for Mount Wachusett Community College Admitted Student Day.
Craig presented "The Key to Future Success: Connecting the Dots Between Education, Career & Financial Planning". According to recent reports, 85% of the class of 2010 moved back in with their parents with an average of $27,200 in student loan debt after graduation. The cost of education is increasing year over year and college graduate salaries are decreasing, if they are lucky to have a salary at all. There is a fundamental issue with how students are planning out their education, career and financial goals juxtaposed against these staggering statistics.
Craig is passionate about closing this information gap and ensuring students achieve a secure financial future, and ultimately connect to life's possibilities. He explained to the crowd of admitted students that the key to future success is connecting the dots between education, career and financial planning.
Make sure your education plan maps to an attainable career worthy of your investment.
