The first goal is to help you find your career. Then your major will be obvious. You can then find colleges with strong programs and job placement rates.

A true college story you want to avoid – A student attending a prestigious college found out his senior year that the best jobs in his field were going to his friends at the college an hour down the road. He was not aware that this other college had the #1 program rank in the US for his major field.

Many students believe they know how to use LinkedIn, but I have not yet met one who can pull powerful results before this training.
This service is a “must” have, high value, for college students, and young adults after graduation.
Ms. Thrower and the Highlands Ability Battery helped discover many traits that I never knew I had. I found I performed very well in concept organization and that it meant my logical thinking was very strong. She did this explanation for every area tested in the Highlands Ability Battery, allowing me to learn about my natural skills and learning style. After analyzing my skill sets together, she helped me decide which career path I could follow if I want to fully utilize my natural talents. Additionally, she helped me navigate the website LinkedIn so that I could connect with professionals in the career path that I chose and ask them about their jobs. This experience was very helpful for me.
BEFORE: Freshman in college. She was stressed from the academic load and having no idea for a major.
BEST CAREER: Soil Scientist, transfer plan to UGA with a strong program. LinkedIn confirmed graduates from UGA get jobs at the USDA. She aims to improve regional soil conservation practices.
Amy Sprints After Finding Her Career, Starts Grad School, Completes a Double Masters and Gets a Dream Job
BEFORE: Amy was a few weeks away from college graduation with a major in English at a private Catholic liberal arts college. She had no idea for a career or job after graduation.
AFTER: Her top career was a lower school librarian with an instructional technology specialty that she ran with. The reasons were many. She had the line up of abilities. Other strengths were as important: a long history as a voracious reader, strong academics, and she enjoyed school. She loved babysitting and spending time with kids. She had a charming presence with strong social and communication skills. The work environment would be stable and filled with a strong community matching her values and interests. In the librarian field, the number of jobs was the highest for K-8 school librarians. She agreed she would enjoy serving a variety of teachers and young students.
Amy ran with the target. A week later she found a summer job at a library that she enjoyed. She applied and was accepted for a master’s program in library science in the fall. In the second week of classes, a teacher referred her to a part-time librarian job opening at a charter K-8 school that Amy secured. This job experience confirmed this was a great career she enjoyed and hoped to stay in. She was so happy when she finished her master’s degree and her job was upgraded to full-time!
The process of going through the HAB was very manageable and incredibly informative. I feel like I was able to learn a lot more about myself and my skills in both a personal and professional realm. I felt I gained a very clear sense of my career, next steps and I’m excited about the possibilities! Learning how to search LinkedIn was incredibly helpful as well!”
BEFORE: High school senior needing to make his college acceptance decision. He initially was the most interested in software engineering. His parents wanted to be sure as this impacted his college and major.
BEST CAREER: Robotics was his top career. Software engineering was a good fit, but when he learned about his 95% – super high score for working in the tangible, 3D world he agreed this was a better match. Software engineering by itself was intangible, thought based. A degree in mechatronics at Kennesaw State University would combine studies for this degree in software, mechanical, and electrical engineering.
