Tips for guiding new college grads
Over the next few weeks, more than 1.8 million students will graduate from college. Watching our adult children and grandchildren navigate the work world reminds us how much that landscape has changed since we started that journey.
To help us understand this new terrain, we turned to Jeffrey J. Selingo, author of There Is Life After College. “There are no longer career paths that were historically there when parents came out of college,” he says. Technology and the recession have affected vast swaths of the work world. In addition, millennials walk a different path to adulthood, including moving back home after graduation, taking longer to find a career and job-hopping when they do find one.
