Parents send their kids to college (and kids want to attend college) for many reasons—the most prominent of which is to make sure they get ahead in life. At one-time college was enough. That is, if you had a degree, you could get a professional well-paying job if you wanted one. That is no longer true.
Advances in technology and globalization have made getting a job considerably more competitive. For example, according to the Department of Labor, nearly 50% of college graduates have jobs that do not require a degree. And a clear majority of recent college graduates report being “under-employed.” The college graduate of today needs more.
That’s the bad news. The good news is you and your student can do something about it; and doing it sooner, rather than later, makes it a lot easier.
Research tells us that students who focus on career preparation goals throughout college have better success in the job market at graduation. They have the time-limited advantage of a “recent college graduate” status to fully leverage.
