Your enormous investment of time, talent, and money has given you an opportunity the vast majority of people your age do not have. Yet, owning your degree will not guarantee a job.
Why do we say that?
Because you are entering an uncertain job market, one in which you will need to stand out from the millions of other candidates.
Think about this for a minute!
In the past couple of years, our economy has produced on average about 150,000 new jobs a month. You are graduating with nearly 2,000,000 other college seniors who are also looking for a job!
It’s no wonder that:
- research by the National Association of Colleges and Employers shows that it takes the average grad nearly 8 months to land a job.
- a study by Adecco found that 81 percent of graduates wished they had done more to prepare for their first professional job search while in college.
- a survey by AfterCollege showed that 83 percent of college students do not have a job lined up by the time they graduate.
- numerous reports show over 50 percent of grads who are 25 or younger are either unemployed or underemployed. (AP, New York Federal Reserve, PEW)
According to the Department of Labor Statistics, the average learner today will have 11-14 jobs by the time they are 38 years old. Doesn’t it make sense to invest the time today to learn the right way to build a career plan, manage your career, and learn proven job search techniques?
