Cornerstone Recruiting was founded in 2004 on this ideology. As the American media force fed young American’s the college dream- college costs simultaneously rapidly increased. Student debt, in turn, rapidly increased. We are left with a generation of debt strapped American’s with few practical skills for today’s work force and a very expensive piece of paper. We know and agree that education is the foundation on which we build the future, but for a large swatch of the population…college costs have now begun to outweigh the benefit for many paths chosen. We work every day to eliminate the skilled trades stigma that was forced onto a generation of young Americans. This 20 minute video is well worth a watch.
