WSJ: Nearly half of college graduates between ages 22 and 27 are unemployed or have jobs that don't use their degrees. The average debt load for the class of 2014 was $33,050, up from $21,975 in 2007.
Unfortunately, many colleges really don't prepare their graduates with the real life tools that they need to get a job. Do they even realize that resumes are on life-support? If you don't have a strong LinkedIn profile and an active presence on the site, by the time you are a junior, you're behind the curve. Do you even have a personal brand? Are you actively promoting it? Do you have a business card? Yes, before you get that job, not after. Do you know how to effectively build a network that will grow as you and your career grow? So many things to consider.
