Did you know that a recent poll found that the majority of parents feared their kids would not do as well as they had? That is an amazing thing! And, I believe a FIRST in modern American history. What are our kid’s best career options? Should EVERY kid go to college? What affect will student loan debt have on our children? Is “trade” school a better option for some? What careers are offering great opportunities and which are declining? Let’s discuss this and more with an EXPERT – Mark S. Babbitt – in this field Thursday, October 9 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET. Mark is generously giving away TWO copies of his book, co-written with Ted Coine, A World Gone Social.
Mark Babbitt is CEO and Founder of YouTern, a social community for college students, recent graduates and young professionals that Mashable calls a Top 5 Online Community for Starting Your Career.
A prolific blogger and speaker, he is also President of Switch and Shift and a co-founder of ForwardHeroes.org. Mark also joined with Ted Coine to write ‘A World Gone Social: How Companies Must Adapt to Survive’ – now available on Amazon and at your local Barnes and Noble.
Mark is the father of five and a grandfather; he and the woman who tolerates him (barely) call Seattle home.
