For many American job seekers, undergraduate education is the first set of building blocks in a lifetime of career success. The college to career transition seemingly promises additional benefits, increased salaries, and long-term achievement in a designated field of study, however, a student’s prospects do not always align with their specific educational background. In fact, 64% of the American workforce is in a position that does not match their undergraduate degree.

“Life should come with a disclaimer that all things are subject to change. What you want to do now may not be what you want to do at 40. With that in mind, you see so many people come out of college with no plan, and you realize that people take on $50,000 to $100,000 in debt just to check the box of having a degree,” says James Philip, Managing Director at Heavy Hitter Holdings and author of the upcoming book Headwind. “Wouldn’t it make sense then to invest the requisite time and energy into developing a proper college plan?”

In this new report that features insights from business owners throughout the US, leading professional resume writers and outplacement provider Employment BOOST uncovers a growing divide between corporate America’s requirements of the newly minted college graduates and the training and education that US colleges are providing to students based on their individual degree choices.
