For many individuals efficiently choosing a college can be one of the most important and daunting tasks that they experience. Important questions come up. What major to choose? Public or Private institution? In-state or out-of-state college? All these factors are made more complicated by the constantly increasing costs associated with a college education. With all these factors it is important that once you make your decision, it is the right one for you. Here at Career Assessment Site we provide you with assessments that can help you decide your optimal career and collegiate path based on your personality type and interests. First some information to consider:

According to collegeboard.org the most affordable option is a public (in-state) four year education will set you back an average of $8,655. Go out of state and it rises to $21,706. Choose private and you are looking at an average cost of $29,056. Want a highly competitive private institution? The price skyrockets. No matter the option you choose, college is an important and expensive decision. Once you make the decision on the college you wish to attend, it is important to make sure that your time at College is well spent. Optimally you want to find a career path to target and then find an educational pathway that best prepares you for your targeted career.  Picking the wrong major can potentially lead to wasted time and money or at worst make you ill prepared for the career you end up pursuing. 

At Career Assessment Site we work to provide you with information that is aimed to help you pick the right career and college path in order to save you both time and money in the long run.
