We think it’s tragic that a grad and their family have to spend nearly ½ the cost of a moderate home to get their degree, only to be unemployed on graduation day.
Unfortunately, that’s the reality for 80 percent of college students that have graduated since 2008 when the economy and hiring plummeted. Few grads realize that, because they don’t take ownership of their career during college, and create a career plan and job search strategy it will take them 7.4 months to get a job, costing them over $25,000 in lost wages.
Why does this happen?
Colleges don’t require students to build a career plan or job search strategy.
As a result, grads are clueless on how to look for a job!
Today’s graduates need to not only master traditional job search skills like networking, interviewing and knowing how to look for a job, but they also need to master the use of Social Media, build their personal brand, create an online presence and use online community tools like Linkedin and Facebook.
That takes time and effort.
