Parent, might you be ready for a job change by the end of this summer?
If you make this job change decision strategically, you could save your kid $40,000 on college costs.
“Really? How could my job change save my kids money on college costs?”
Many colleges and universities provide free or reduced-price college tuition for the children of their employees.
If you’re an experienced accountant, food service professional, salesperson, marketing professional, groundskeeper, custodian, receptionist, career counselor, or administrative professional — or if you have a master’s or Ph.D. credential that could allow you to teach on a university campus — this employee benefit could save your child a bundle over four years of college.
There may be a small catch, however. You may have to be employed by that college or university for four whole years before you can take advantage of this benefit. So plan ahead. If your child will be headed to college just two years from now, it’s still worth a shot.
To learn how your child can get a tuition reimbursement job that can pay off big, read the article I’ve written here.
There’s no part of parenting more important than planning ahead to set your kid up for successful college and career life.
For clear, step-by-step help getting your kids through college debt-free, don’t rely on a loose collection of blog posts. You’ll miss hundreds of details that way. Instead, get your copy of my book:
You can “Look Inside” the book on Amazon for free by going to:

You can see the “Top 9 Questions Parents Are Asking Me About LAUNCH,” here.
Read just one chapter of LAUNCH every 1-3 months while your child’s in middle school and high school, and you’ll know every viable strategy for debt-free college at exactly the right time to implement it.
And if your child’s already well past middle school? That’s OK; you can run to catch up. But the process of getting your kids through college debt-free goes more smoothly the earlier you start it – especially if you’re not planning to save up any money to pay for college.
