Hiring Managers Release Top 10 Colleges List
Most “best colleges” lists are based on factors like students’ SAT scores, campus life offerings and successful student outcomes. While those lists are helpful to students choosing a college, they don’t really capture the biggest picture. The point of attending college is – gaining knowledge, of course – but in realistic terms, to get a job after graduation. And a good job, at that. That’s why a list developed by hiring managers is crucial to prospective college students. It lets them know where hiring managers prefer to hire as well as what qualities are crucial to making the successful transition between college graduate to new hire.
