The   Path From College to Career

The Path From College to Career

When students come to college, they are thinking mostly about what they are going to get out of it — a job.Landing a good job is the single most important reason students give for going to college. More than eight in 10 first-year students say improving their chances of getting a better job is very important to them, according to a national survey of freshmen conducted annually by the University of California at Los Angeles’s Higher Education Research Institute. In many ways, this attitude makes sense.
