There’s much to consider after making a decision to go to college – What do I want to do? What do I want to major in? How do I pick the right college for me? And, a host of other important questions. It can be stressful and overwhelming when you consider the number of college options available. Many just want to review some straight forward data to narrow their choices, which is where a powerful assessment can help. In this episode, Laurie Genevish, founder of, and I discuss the Harrison Assessment and how she uses this tool to take the mystery out of selecting your ideal college.

A few points to consider from our conversation:

  • Many students and their families just want some straight forward data and information to help them sift and sort through the roles that are a best fit for the student
  • Many students and their parents get stuck with knowing where to start
  • The Harrison Assessments’ assessment tool can fast track your process and assist with helping you get an outlook on your role of choice
  • Using the Harrison Assessments’ Career Navigator she offers four reports for your review (sample reports)
  •  If a job role contains at least 75% of what you like to do, you’ll be more successful
  • Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you’re willing to do it
  • What are you really going to be doing in this job; what does the job role really entail?
  • Using this assessment tool and moving through the process can help with writing your college essays
  • Sophomore year is a great time to start seriously considering your ideal college
  • Start talking with your child early – she provides a free guide on her website
