The first job your students take after graduation can impact the rest of their career, both for better or for worse.
Reported by CNBC, a report by the Strada Institute for the Future of Work reports that more than 40% of college graduates take positions immediately out of school that don’t require a degree. And starting here means that 10 years later, these graduates end up earning $10,000 a year less than their peers.
The takeaway? How can our career services departments do a better job consulting students on their first and future career moves? Especially for online students who don’t have the same physical access to these on-campus resources, how can we better communicate this critical first job reality?
