Description

This two-book bundle is an essential handbook for any student or parent considering college. Learn why a degree is no longer a passport to success in today's job market.

Includes:
Dream Factories
The “good jobs” of the past are almost gone. Today, many college graduates face unemployment while others face underemployment. Professors Ken Coates and Bill Morrison explore the death of the “good job,” and the role that colleges have played in the disconnect between career fantasies and realities.

What to Consider If You're Considering College
If you listen to the general chatter from parents, guidance counselors, and politicians, you would think that going to college is the only option that ensures future success. That's no longer true. This book is designed to help anyone under thirty make the best possible educational and career choices.
