Episode 36: An Alternative to College? With Derek Magill

This week Jason Guigno and Corey Jeffreys interview Derek Magill, and discuss alternatives to college. Derek himself dropped out years ago and has had a fruitful career. We do not have anything against college (Corey and I being graduates ourselves), but feel that Praxis offers an important service at a time when college costs are continually increasing while the job market moves towards specialization.

Derek Magill helps people skip college, build a career, and educate themselves.

He’s also the Director of Marketing at Praxis and the author of an upcoming book on building an unconventional career.
