The Best Way to Choose a College Major or Training Program

There are a lot of websites that talk about choosing a college major and tell you what to major in. But The Career Key is the only website to offer majors advice based on solid science and independent research proven to lead to a successful education decision. We just launched the most comprehensive resource out there - and it's affordable and easy to use.

Why does The Career Key offer the best way to choose a college major or post secondary program? Unlike other approaches it:
  1. Uses a scientifically valid career test to match your interests and personality with majors and training programs;
  2. Offers you the most education choices (all of the 1,400+ college majors and training programs listed by the U.S. and Canadian governments);
  3. Shows you careers related to educational programs that match your personality;
  4. Shows you accurate, comprehensive, up to date information about each career;
  5. Organizes all the programs and careers in a unique way developed by recognized vocational expert Dr. Lawrence K. Jones that is easy to explore; and
  6. Links you to a description of each major and program that interests you.
  7. All this information only costs $14.50 when you purchase the eBook, The Education Key: Choosing the Right College Major, Training, or Instructional Program, and The Career Key test together. And we offer a special, affordable group discount for both.
To learn more, read the full "Choosing a College Major, Training, or Instructional Program" article at The Career Key website and visit our eBookstore.

But don’t take our word for it. Independent published research with over 130,000 students at 112 colleges and universities link college success (higher GPA, increased graduation rate, and higher post graduation earnings) to matching one’s Holland personality to majors. Download our Summer 2009 newsletter to see the studies and links to them.

And last but not least, we are the only career guidance company to donate 10% of our sales to charity. Learn more by clicking on Donations at Quick Links on The Career Key home page.

I know I am being majorly guilty (pun intended) of self-congratulations here - but it's hard to not be proud when you offer such a high quality, unique, and affordable product that does good in the world.

Please spread the word to friends and colleagues because we do not do direct advertising or onsite ads (we give money to charity instead).
