Platinum College and Career Package

      Seem lost and confused about the future?

      Have an uncertain college and career path?

      Not know where to begin when exploring college programs and opportunities?

      Not know how to begin studying for the SAT?

If so, March Consulting would like to recommend their Platinum College and Career Package, a program designed to help guide your student through the admissions process, testing prep, and financial aid while simultaneously preparing them for their future career.

We meet with the student in regular one-on-one counseling sessions in which we regulate the student’s progress and help them evaluate their own personal and academic goals. We start by evaluating the student’s strengths and passions through a series of tests, particularly through the Johnson O’Connor Assessment at the center in LA, which specializes in finding potential careers based on the student’s strengths and weaknesses. We also connect the student to Higher Scores Test Prep, a professional company that specializes in raising students’ standardized test scores. Then we help the students set goals and make a plan both for while they’re in high school and while they’re in college in order to achieve their career goals. We walk the student and parents through the application process, and help them determine a college list that is best for their goals and is within their price range. We make sure that the student has everything they need for success.

This comprehensive package takes students deep inside the college admissions process, and helps them keep on track, stay organized, and demonstrate all of their hard work in the best ways. We combine the college admissions process with our career coaching services to help your student prepare for their future and make the most of their tuition dollars.  Then we add in-depth SAT prep and the Johnson O’Connor testing to guide them into their future.  We cover job shadowing and informational interviews, networking in college and in high school, personal marketing, and setting long term and short term goals. By the end of our time together, your student will be prepared for every twist and turn that college or future employment might bring.

 

Our Platinum College and Career Package focuses on the following areas:

 

  • An Orientation and Full Assessment – Connecting the student’s personality and goals with potential colleges.
  • §  Johnson O’Connor Assessment – Professional testing to identify strengths and weaknesses and match them with potential career paths.
