SECURE YOUR FUTURE
College is not always the smartest route! Sometimes it can be a little like the old fable The Tortoise and the Hare.
Our Hare college graduate enjoys a starting annual salary of $50,000, while the steady Tech Tortoise, or graduate of the Institute of Pest Control Technology, begins at $40,000.
It would seem that all bets would be on the Hare. BUT WAIT… let’s take a closer look!
Let’s see what happens when we add the average cost of four years of college or $142,880 of debt now dragging behind the poor old Hare. We also have to account for the fact that the Hare has to wait four years to start the race (while in college with zero earnings), while our savvy Tech Tortoise is busy making a good living.
The final numbers may surprise you! Here is how it looks at the end of thirteen years:
Our weary Hare college graduate has earned $430,212, while our savvy Tech Tortoise has earned $790,000! ALMOST DOUBLE!
Here at IMPACT, we are invested in the lives of our Certified Graduates. Our commitment does not end at placement! We follow and support our alumni, working in harmony with their employers, to see that they progress in their trade from Apprentice to Journeyman (or Journeywoman) to Master Technician—and receive the added pay for each level of advancement.
