Treating College as a Four-Year Job Search

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.
