Research shows alumni expect their alma mater to help them in the transitions in their career
A study by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development found that 58 percent of graduates surveyed did not think their alma mater prepared them for their first professional job search.
How does that affect your alumni association?
It means that nearly 60 percent of your Class of 2018 will leave campus with mixed feelings about their college experience. You’ve heard the term – buyer’s remorse. Buyer’s remorse results in a sense of regret after making a purchase! Buyer’s remorse among the majority of your graduates will have serious consequences when you attempt to engage them in events, activities, and fundraising campaigns.
You can change this!
The Grad CareerFestival is designed to give your graduates the information, skills, and tools they will need to not only land a job, but acquire the position they want – sooner! Research by the National Association of Colleges and Employers suggests that it will take the average grad nearly eight months to find a job. You could put tens of thousands of dollars into your graduates’ pockets by helping them land a job sooner – than later!
