Well, the graduation season is upon us all. This is a time when families are prepping, senior pictures are being scheduled and taken, caps and gowns are being prepped, etc. It is a great time.
However, one of the things some have on their minds consist of finding employment especially high school and college graduates.
According to an article in Newsweek titled Class of 2021: Four Ways to Help COVID-Era Grads Adapt to the Working World BY LINDSEY POLLAK, The Class of 2021 is entering a challenging job market, perhaps like none other. While recent unemployment numbers have been encouraging, hiring for entry level, college grad positions has fallen 45 percent since the start of the pandemic, according to data from Burning Glass Technologies, a labor-market analytics firm. The bottom line: Four million graduates are going to need a lot of help and shouldn't have to go it alone. Here's how we—educators, parents and friends—can help.
Become a micro mentor
Share real life horror stories
Offer a paid internship or apprenticeship
We all need support. No one can go at this alone, so if you know of someone graduating or making a transition, please reach out to offer help. It is up to the individual to take it but please offer.
