Companies That Help Pay Your College Tuition

on May 6, 2016

There’s been a lot of talk about corporate college tuition reimbursement lately. What is it? Essentially, it’s when the company you work for helps you pay for college.

There are a lot of reasons you should have a part-time job during high school and college. You’ll earn spending money. You’ll save a little. You’ll make great contacts and friends.

But you also may have the opportunity to receive tuition assistance, which could save you thousands of dollars.
