Did You Know?
Changing jobs — and careers — may be a lot more common than you think. A long-term survey of almost 10,000 Americans found they changed jobs an average of 12+ times from age 18 to 52, or every 2.8 years.

While writing his book, Career Happiness and Success, PATH2 Founder and CEO Dr. Richard Ellison discovered a huge problem: Students were getting buried in college debt, taking 6+ years to get a “4-year degree” and then settling for a job they didn’t enjoy — which often didn’t require a degree in the first place.
He realized that choosing a career and college major before starting college could help solve these problems. So he began working with his grandchildren and their friends to determine their best career. That’s how they discovered the existing career tests and assessments were NOT helpful. Dr. Ellison decided to fill this gap in the college-prep market by creating a structured program that helps people learn about themselves and their career options so they can make smart decisions.
Shocked to find out that about 70% of all Americans are unhappy in their current job, Dr. Ellison also created a version of the PATH2 program to help people in career transition leverage their skills and experience and determine the best career for this stage of their life.
