Which Option Will You Choose?

  • Option 1: Go Alone Strategy?

  • Option 2: Education Consultant?

    Here, parents engage a pricey college admission consultant for applications. This strategy is costly, reliant, inflexible, time-consuming, and dependent on the consultant.

  • Option 3: Join Career Trajectory?

    Here, students + parents work collaboratively using the self-paced, affordable Career Trajectory college admissions consulting program to build winning college applications.

How Career Trajectory Helped A US Family!

John Gonzalez Case Study!

Before Career Trajectory:


John Gonzalez owns a small landscaping business. He would like his daughter to get a good college degree. But since he has never been in college, he is unsure of the application process, what major to apply for, which colleges to apply to, or how to even complete a strong application. His daughter’s high school has one college admissions career counselor who is very busy. John searches for college admissions consultants online who are charging anywhere between $5,400-$42,500 for consulting. John doesn’t want to spend his money on college admission consultants but wants to reserve it for paying the tuition fee. John is scared and anxious for his daughter.


After Career Trajectory:


John hears about Career Trajectory from one of the PTO members who has used the program before and was very happy about it. John joins the Career Trajectory online program and gets access to the entire program at less than $1.5 a day. John, his wife Sarah, and their daughter all watch the video program on their Internet-connected computer and discuss the strategy in the Career Trajectory program. They form a clear plan for application based on the self-paced college admission consulting guidance given in the program. They pick the 3-3-3 strategy. They also decided that the best major for their daughter would be in the field of architecture.


Impact of Career Trajectory:


They apply confidently and secure admission in most of the colleges that they apply to. Their daughter now has a wide choice of colleges to select from and pay affordable tuition. Thanks to Career Trajectory their college application process was stress-free, planned, and effective. Plus, the entire process was very affordable and timely. They believe they have saved $64,000 by selecting the “value” in-state university versus the private college that they originally wanted to apply for. Plus, the major they selected for the daughter has high growth potential. They would recommend the Career Trajectory program to friends and family!

How Career Trajectory Helped an International Family!

Rajiv Shah Case Study!

Before Career Trajectory


Rajiv Shah lives in Mumbai India and owns a small software development shop. His son is going to the 10th standard. He wants his son to be very successful and believes that international college education would be better for him than local education. But he has many questions. Where should his son apply for college – US, Canada, UK, or Australia? When should the son go abroad – after 10th, after 12th, or after his bachelor’s degree? What college major should his son select? He reaches out to local Indian college admission consultants, but most receive kickbacks from certain colleges and only recommend those colleges. He’s confused and anxious for his son.


After Career Trajectory


Rajiv finds and joins the Career Trajectory program while searching on the Internet for “Study in the USA after 10th.” He likes the fact that the program is delivered directly from the Washington DC metro region and does not receive kickbacks. He also likes that the program is digital, self-paced, and focused on the entire family versus just the student. He wants to be involved in this son’s college application process. He also likes the fact that the program is very affordable and has an open enrollment policy so they can join immediately. He sees that the program is comprehensive, holistic, and covers topics that a parent and student may be interested in.


Impact of Career Trajectory


They apply confidently using the 4-4-4 application strategy for bachelor’s in ‘AI” in the USA due to its high quality of education, the strong technology sector, and low Covid rates. They secure admission in most of the colleges they apply to. Thanks to Career Trajectory their college application process was stress-free, planned, and effective. Plus, the entire process was very affordable and timely. They believe they have saved over $58,000 by selecting the “value” university versus what the Indian consultants were suggesting. Plus, the major they selected for their daughter has high growth potential. They would recommend the Career Trajectory program to friends and family!
