In this unit, we will review recent outcome data regarding young people’s endeavors after post-secondary schooling.

Income levels are lower as well, likely due at least in part to seeking employment requiring fewer qualifications, skills, or education. Several counseling tools are described in this unit to help students envision patient transitions to new circumstances.
