Though the schools on your college search list may not have made it to the top spot, it doesn’t make them any less capable in helping graduates find and succeed in a job after college. As you make campus tours, attend information sessions and speak with admissions officers, ask about their career services for college students and recent graduates. Here are a few questions to get you started:
- What is the job placement success rate for graduates of the college?
- What career services are available to students preparing to enter the workforce?
- Does the school offer networking opportunities or internship and job placements with specific companies or alumni?
- How does the college assist alumni with the job search throughout their careers?
There are so many things to consider as you search for the perfect college: potential fields of study, quality of student life and study abroad and volunteer opportunities. But don’t forget to think about life after college as you navigate the college search and make final decisions. After all, college is just a few years, whereas your time in the workforce may be for the rest of your life.
