Description:

This is the only book that provides information on the actual jobs and earning of college graduates in 50 majors. Based on an updated US Census Bureau study for 170,000 college graduates, this handbook offers accurate and helpful information for choosing college majors or deciding what to do with a degree that's already been earned.Readers will discover which majors are the best investment, the job and salary prospects for specific majors, the employment growth rates through 2018 for particular majors, what each major's graduates do on the job, how many of a major's graduates go on to additional education, and more.Now in its third edition, this best-selling title includes completely updated data, tables, and content. New information and tables cover how closely related graduates jobs are to their major; reasons why graduates work in jobs not related to their major; the percentages of graduates in each major working in small, medium, and large organizations; the percentage of graduates in each major working in new businesses; and graduates' levels of job satisfaction when compared to graduates of other majors.Other updated chapters discuss the important steps to take before college to ensure future career success, the earning premium related to a college education, the misinformation that exists about college costs, and the mistaken belief that "sticker price" of college is the final price.
