(NECN: Alysha Palumbo) - More and more these days students are faced with the daunting task of planning out their career path at a young age.

And that has many considering different options that are yielding plenty of success stories

For students faced with planning out their future -- and their finances -- as young as middle school these days, some are looking for ways to avoid being burdened with debt from student loans after college, and landing a good paying job as soon as possible.
