Education institutions provide information and training to develop skills, minds and talent. All essential for the personal and professional development and career success of individuals.
Research shows the higher the education degree the higher the income and the lesser the unemployment likelihood.
Research also shows that the first job graduates take out of school matters more than subsequent jobs.
87% of graduates who were appropriately employed in their first job continued to hold positions that matched their levels of education five years later, and 91% of them continued to be well-employed at the 10 year mark! On the contrary, most college graduates who start out underemployed stay underemployed even 10 years out! This is what they call, “the Permanent Detour.”
When institutions provide not only the course work, but resources to identify career choices that align with the students career needs and interests, resume building experiences and guidance, industry connections, and co-curricular activities, students are better prepared for and make better ‘first job’ selections. They find jobs and careers they love and last, and are far less likely to take the “Permanent Detour.”
Educational institutions want their graduates to succeed in their careers! It’s good for their graduates, it’s good for the hiring organizations, and…it’s very good for the educational institutions.
When graduates succeed, it increases the likelihood of other graduates being recruited to the organizations, which makes recruiting to the institution easier. It’s pretty simple.
Educational institutions typically have career services departments or initiatives aimed at supporting students and alumni in their career development, job search, and networking efforts. These services are designed to enhance employability and foster success among graduates.
Ultimately, the success of graduates benefits not only the individuals themselves but also the hiring organizations and the educational institutions. It creates a positive feedback loop where successful outcomes lead to increased opportunities, better recruitment prospects, and a stronger reputation for the institution, ultimately benefiting future generations of students.
