Why PrepStart?

There is an ever-present need for millennials (those born from the early 1980’s to the early 2000's) to effectively showcase their skills and abilities to colleges and employers in order to succeed in higher education and the workforce. Now, more than ever, students and recent graduates face many challenges when applying to colleges, internships, and jobs. There are several factors causing these challenges, including, but not limited to:


  • Lack of sufficient college admissions counseling in high schools

  • Constant changes to standardized tests and scoring methodologies

  • ​Increasing tuition rates to attend colleges and universities

  • ​Lack of guidance and knowledge about the financial aid process

  • An increase in college graduates, leading to more competition for internships and jobs

  • Lack of workforce development training in high schools and colleges

  • ​The role of social media in influencing a student's chances of gaining college admission or employment


PrepStart Consulting provides students with the guidance and tools to turn these challenges into opportunities by tailoring plans to fit each client's individual needs, goals, and plans for college and career.
