It's all too typical. You graduate and attempt to make your ascension into corporate America, only to find out that everything you learned in college did not prepare you for the everyday struggles of your career. To make matters worse, you're saddled with a full amount of student loans and your starting corporate salary is under $45k.
Heard the story before? O'course you have. Every year 44 million post graduates accumulate $1.4 trillion in student loan debt. Effectively putting each college graduate in a $37,000 to $60,000 hole. Tack on some high interest rates and you have a nation of slave ooops! I mean indenture servants : )
