More than half aren’t confident in their abilities
College students think they’ll feel unprepared at their first job after college — only 36 percent believe they will graduate with the skills and knowledge to be successful in the workplace, according to a new survey.
Many are concerned about even landing a job as a college grad. Just over half feel their current major will lead to a good position.
According to the survey, conducted by Gallup and Strada Education Network, students pursuing science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) degrees are the most confident about their future prospects as a college grad. Liberal arts and business majors are less confident.
