For college seniors who are just about to graduate from college, the thought of leaving college can be both pretty exciting and scary at the same time. It's because aside from the fact that college is over and that they are just a step away from their dreams, the fact remains that most of them will also have to be facing student debts.

However, there is a good news. There are companies who actually offer tuition reimbursement for the employees who will be eligible, that even if they really don't have the obligation to do so, they have found great ways to help their people.
