College Optional Careers features ads on some of its pages. These may include:

  • Chitika mobile ads
  • Google AdSense ads
  • Infolinks text ads

I don’t select the content of these ads, so if you see a Chitika or Google ad for a certain product on a webpage about that product, it’s a coincidence.

College Optional Careers may also feature banner ads, as well as image ads from our affiliates.


Some links on this website are affiliate links. When you click on an affiliate link, a cookie will be set in your web browser that lets us receive a commission if you purchase a product from the other end.

Naturally I would like you to buy the service or products I recommend and I am influenced by that fact. I try to avoid this conflict of interest by only affiliating myself with companies that I trust, and by trying to giving a balanced picture of every service or product I describe.

If you like this website and would like to support it, consider visiting one of our affiliates. You will not be charged extra when you click on these links; the price is the same as if you found these websites on your own.


Authors and publishing companies may send me books and other products to review on this website. When I’ve received a complimentary copy of a book or another product, I disclose that at the beginning of the review, e.g. “John Martin sent me a copy of his book to review.”

I may receive affiliate income on some of my reviews. For example, I might review a book and include an Amazon affiliate link at the bottom of the review.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. I strive to always give my honest opinion on topics or products I write about and promote.
