College Career Strategist Elizabeth Venturini Takes Issue With 'Admission' Movie

LOS ANGELES, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In Hollywood's new movie "Admission," Tina Fey plays a Princeton admissions officer who tells college hopefuls that the secret to admittance is: "There is no secret - Just be yourself."  College Career Strategist Elizabeth Venturini says, "That advice may work in the movies, but in the real world, students need a College Career Plan. And that includes getting a job after receiving a degree."

"With high schools providing little or no personal college career counseling for students, stressed-out parents are on their own to get answers. Researching information is confusing and takes enormous time and energy," says Venturini.

Venturini offers a lifeline to parents with her informative online program "Failure to Launch – Not an Option ." The program helps parents and teens make essential decisions based on fact, not Hollywood hype. Teens are guided toward a college major they will enjoy and a career path that will earn them a living. Teens also learn how to successfully present themselves for admission interviews, internships, and future jobs.

Venturini's Five Essential Tips to Help Parents Launch Their Teens

TAKE the 'Boomerang Kid' Effect Reality TestParents are becoming increasingly alarmed at seeing their children come back home after failing at a college education. Take action and find out if your teen is "ready to launch" before they start filling out college applications and you start writing out the tuition check.

AVOID College Admissions Frenzy:Make the college admissions process one of fun and excitement, instead of angst for your teen. Start the process early and stay the course as a team. You and your teen will be more likely to select a college that will provide a happy and fulfilling college experience, and also the best prospects for a rewarding career after graduation.

IDENTIFY Your Teen's Strengths and Aptitudes:Teens need to be more than just an Avatar, and know how to assert their identity outside of the "chat room."  Have your teens take an Interests Assessment from a qualified administrator. It wilI help them gain clarity on college selections, majors, and future careers.

GET a Jump on the Job Competition:College career centers are fast becoming the most important hub for parents. Look at the quality of services provided by the college career center. Check the ratio of qualified career counselors to students. Ask about career fairs, job placements, corporate partnerships, and well-connected alumni networks. All of these can open the door to future opportunities for your student in an increasingly tight job market.

GAIN Work Experience with an Internship: Students can increase their chances for a dream job after college with an internship. They'll develop leadership skills, learn how to manage time, improve their work ethics, and grow a list of job contacts. Look at the number of available internships, application deadlines, and the experience that can pay off in a job offer after college.

"If you are a Tina Fey fan, or want to see a cute movie, go see 'Admission.' But if you want to know the 'real secret' about getting into Princeton, or any other college, then you should talk to a college career strategist like me," says Venturini.
