College graduates who haven’t gotten jobs are in real danger of getting too comfortable on the couch watching ESPN or “The Real Housewives.” How do you prevent this from happening?
When should college students start preparing to find a job after college?. Early! Like sophomore year! Few do, and the result is often panic and depression when they graduate and have no clue what to do other than go home and hope for the best.
It used to be that when a student graduated from college, they would begin their own lives, which included moving out of the house they grew up in. Not anymore. With 53% of recent college graduates unemployed or under-employed, many graduates are forced to move back into their childhood bedroom. That’s what happened to me.
