CAREEREALISM, an online career advice magazine, is starting a new movement in May called The Happy Grad Project. The initiative will help change the way recent grads view their current outlook on getting hired after college.

People have always been told college is the best time of their lives, and everything changes once they have graduated and set foot into the “real world.” The “real world” has always had this scary, negative connotation to it. But why?

  • 1.6 million undergraduates expected to graduate in 2014
  • 44% of recent grads are underemployed
  • 2013 grads average $35,200 in college-related debt
  • 36% of young adults ages 18-31 live with their parents

Check out this video to see what students are saying about the “real world.”

The Happy Grad Project will unite recent grads, encourage them to get excited for their next step, and prepare them for the life and career ahead of them.

During the month of May, CAREEREALISM will feature practical advice on what it takes for young professionals to find a great job and create a life they love, along with real stories from grads who have achieved happiness after college.
