“To be awarded in every category we entered by such a prestigious organization is a true testament to our product and we hope for this to ultimately help us reach more students across the country,” added CaerusPoint President Chris Botha.

Major Decision is an education-based series of entertaining videos (appealing to a diverse audience) that dissect each highlighted career in less than a half hour in the form of an up-beat hosted show, and feature an informal in-depth interview of a professional in that specific field. This offers a high school senior or first-year college student an accurate “day-in-the-life” depiction of a career in an exciting and positive platform. The series provides present-day, real world guidance from an expert within his or her area of expertise. The Major Decision career guidance video library spans twelve popular industries and showcases up to five careers within each industry.

The unique informal in-person interview style, comprehensive career coverage and proprietary career ranking system set this series apart from other career guidance programs. The series helps boost post-secondary education and helps reduce dropout rates by educating America’s youth about the array of careers that are available today.
