National Debt Relief shared in an article published last May 16, 2014 some insights on how to help college graduates with their financial future. The article titled “3 Facts About College That Will Set Up Your Financial Future” shared some tips to enlighten graduates better in tackling future finances.
The article starts off by discussing the first college fact that contrary to popular belief, the school where the graduate came from is of utmost importance. There are instances that ivy league graduates are preferred in some companies but it is an exception rather than the rule. Not all hiring companies look at the college name as the only basis for a job offer.
The more important thing is the graduate rather than the school. A high GPA score will not assure a great employee just as the lack of sterling credentials predict an outright outcast in the workplace. The company looks at the applicant more than anything else.
The second point the article shares is cause and effect. The activities taken in college can help the graduate in managing finances in the future. Skills taken up and learned during college can prove to be more useful and far more important when job applications are on the line. Companies look into this characteristics and puts a premium on it when considering extending out job offers.
Skills are developed with persistence over time. The amount of work put in during college can yield favorable results in job hunting. Students who devoted active time for extracurricular activities, took up an internship or worked on serious projects learn valuable skills along the way. Having a faculty member who mentored and took time to nurture a student’s talents and interests also help.
The third point that the article shares is the fact that effects of expenditures in college will boomerang back way after the graduation march. The amount of debt incurred during college can affect the graduates future net worth. Credit card and student loan debts are just a few of determining factors on how a college graduate will amass wealth down the line.
The article also points out some practical tips in helping college students be successful in financial management. It explains the importance of having and maintaining a budget to monitor expenses thoroughly. Practicing early in college can benefit the student in the future in terms of managing finances.
Knowing about the existing debt will also help equip the student in tackling the problem head on. Interest rates and payment dates are just some of the items that the student needs to know and monitor. Proper credit card use is also discussed in the article as an important characteristic for college students to learn and practice.
