Compared to just a few months ago, college graduates are more optimistic about their future.
Provo, UT (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
Recently graduated college-degree holders have been the focus of many discussions about unemployment and the difficult economic situation the country is facing right now because of their susceptibility to having higher unemployment than most. However, a recent Pew Research Study shows that compared to just a few months ago, college graduates are more optimistic about improvements for the future. My Colleges and Careers, as a portal for online education, has designed a website that will help college students earn their degree and be prepared for employment in the future.
This month, 52 percent of college graduates say they expect the economy to improve, while 36 percent expect no change. Just a few months ago in December, data from this same survey showed that only 29 percent of graduates thought the economy would be better in a year and 52 percent thought it would stay the same. As a gauge of how much optimism for economic improvement has improved for college graduates, out of all individuals surveyed, only 44 percent said they expect conditions to improve. While this is 10 percent more than it was a few months ago, it’s still smaller than the number of college graduates with an optimistic view. This indicates that college-degree holders have more hope and confidence in their futures. Whether this is due to economic indications or to the fact that degree-holders feel themselves to be more qualified, remains to be seen. My Colleges and Careers, in efforts to help individuals’ gain career confidence, provides tools that can guide students toward online degree programs. Having an online degree will most definitely increase confidence for job hunters.
