CNN has some advice for any former students now saddled with excess debt – carry out a decade of social work or join the ranks of the government’s civilian service corps.
CNN business news correspondent Stephanie Elam put on the hard sell for government service to viewers of Newsroom.
“This is really about helping those people out, getting them ready as far as the choice for best course of study for the financial future,” Elam told viewers.
“So you may consider the possibility of enlisting in public service. Demand is really high right now for government jobs …and any remaining debt on federal student loans will be forgiven after you work full-time in public service for ten years.” Elam continued.
