Lake Land College Partnerships for College and Career Services
Lake Land College / EIEFES Tech Prep

Parents are the most important influence in their children’s chosen career path. Most people spend 14 years in school, 20 years as a parent, BUT 45 years in a career; more time than anything else in their lives. The right career decision will have an enormously positive impact. Helping your child make a satisfying and successful career choice success can be one of the most rewarding aspects of parenting.

Family support is more important than any other factors, including the student’s IQ or economic status.  Parents know their child’s interests, abilities and goals better than any other person involved in education.  They can help match these to a career.
