Infograhic: Preparing College Grads for the “Real World” of Today’s Job Market

Joey Vasser | October 26, 2020

Graduating college and entering the workforce is a scary, exciting, and pivotal time — and imagine those emotions being compounded by what we’ve all been going through in 2020?

59% of companies implemented hiring freezes during the pandemic and 75% of internship programs were moved virtually, delayed, or cancelled entirely. The hiring landscape is very different than it was a year ago for these new grads, and without a vaccine on the horizon, it’s going to continue to be highly competitive for this next generation as they enter the “real world.”

The class of 2021 (and beyond) will need to be prepared for the new remote workforce that they’ll be entering and — it’s critical that universities are taking steps today to set their alumni up for success.
