We believe College Career Centers need more resources!

If a departments funding per student served as an indication of where college administrators placed the departments importance to the college, the Career Center would be near the bottom. At the top would be the admissions office!

Its not unusual for private colleges to invest $3,000 to recruit each admitted student. ($1,000 for state colleges). Surveys conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers have found that the average Career Centers budget, not including salaries, is roughly $34,000 per year. Assuming the average college had 2,000 students of which 400 graduate each year, the average invested in each graduate would be $85.

Is this sending the right message to prospective students, parents, current & graduating students and alumni?

In todays tough job market, students need more help in deciding which industry and career will best suit their education, skills, behavior and passion. They also need more help in understanding how to search for a job, organize the search, and handle interviews. Very little of this can happen when the Career Center has only $85 to invest in each graduating senior.

Please help our students become better prepared for their careers and job search by providing more resources to the Career Centers! Reallocate resources to the Career Centers!
