More and more, we see well educated college graduates finding a job, but are they finding the ‘right’ career for them? Our institutions are preparing students academically, but do they have the right skills for the job force? According to a McKinsey survey (Aug-Sept 2012), 42% of employers believe students are prepared for the job market, while 72% of academic institutions believe that students are prepared.
Despite increased cost of attending college, career preparation focus for all students remains a challenge
- Employers remain challenged as millions of open jobs are unfilled
- Graduates often returning home as they search for career opportunities
- Constituents asking if college is worth it
