Preparations for entering the job market begins the moment you enter college. Understandably, getting acclimated to college life, difficult assignments, class and roommates takes time. However, waiting until your senior year to begin thinking about your transition into the world of work is not advisable.

Here a few statistics that may interest you. According to a recent survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE):

  • 27.2 percent of students never visited the Career Center
  • 16.1 percent only visited once
  • 18.2 percent visited twice
  • 27.9 percent visited the Career Center 4 or more times, and
  • Only 11.6 percent of students visited their Career Services Center 8 times.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that more than seventeen million people are working in positions that do not require a degree, and college many graduates are employed in positions that are outside of their preferred field of interest or study.

Students are strongly encouraged to focus on career planning as early their first year. Take advantage of the services and resources in the Career Development Center. 

It’s never too early to begin planning for life after college, but it can be too late to delay taking steps toward your transition into the world of work.
