Citrus College supported the production of “Success in the New Economy” to help a broader audience begin to understand preparation today for tomorrow’s labor market realities. The end result is a compelling case for students to explore career choices early, make informed decisions when declaring their college education goal, and to consider technical skill acquisition, real-world application and academics (career technical programs) in tandem with a classic education. This balanced approach to life and learning results in a well-educated and employed workforce.

Many students and parents are overwhelmed with decisions about future careers and education.  The formula for a successful career used to look like this:

COLLEGE DEGREE = SUCCESSFUL CAREER
(HIGHER SALARY & JOB SECURITY)

However, in a world that is consistently expanding technologically, the formula has changed to this:

COLLEGE DEGREE + TECHNICAL SKILLS = SUCCESSFUL CAREER

This video is a “must-see” for all students and their parents as they begin to make choices about their future.  It offers a great explanation about the benefits of combining technical skills with a traditional education.
