For some college students who just earned their degree, the future does not look as bright, and that is because of the thought of the student loan that they will have to be carrying during their career. And that is something they have to start facing as soon as they land a job.

According to Student Loan Hero, a total amount of $1.4 trillion is owed by Americans in student loan debt and that is distributed among 44 million borrowers. It is definitely a very huge amount of money and it could feel overwhelming, but graduates will still have to face it sooner or later.
