If you want a college degree that will quickly prepare you for a specific type of work, attending a private 2-year college that grants associate degrees can be a good choice. However, because private colleges can be expensive, it’s even more important that you pick a school with a proven reputation for preparing students for employment and earning enough money to justify the cost of an education. PayScale’s College Salary Report has the alumni salary data you need to identify the country’s best career colleges by alumni salaries.
