The #1 reason students drop out of college/university is a lack of career focus.
- Even if they do stay in college, students who lack focus end up spending more time and money to earn a degree.
- Most of the time, the degree they end of getting, is not relevant to their interests and strengths.
Because of that...
Without a career focus….most of Canada’s youth today are likely to experience:
- an average of 17 employment transitions in their working lifetime
- a variety of occupations in up to 5 different sectors of the economy
- a variety of concurrent work roles (multi-tasking)
- planned and unplanned gaps of no work

If you have a career focus….you will increase your chances of:
- finding a career you love
- finding a job you are good at
- finishing school quicker (4 yrs instead of 5 or 6 or 7, etc)
- saving $20,000 + in educational costs
- finding a job after graduation
