Those who work in an industry that is affected by automation should not fear a job change! Many (over 35%) of Americans are currently changing careers, which includes education and re-training, so no one should fear a jobless future when areas such as education, customer service, management and leadership, technology, and creative development, are in constant need of real people.”

One of the most pressing (and perennial) issues facing college students today is the cost of education. In the United States where student loan debt in the United States has skyrocketed to $1.5 trillion, the real worth of attending college has sparked debates.

For parents, sending a college student means paying hefty college fees for years so their kids get the best chance at shaping a lucrative career and securing their future.
