Does Success in College Really Allow You to Get Ahead in the Job Market? (INFOGRAPHIC)

Since 1980, the number of U.S. jobs requiring more education, experience, and training have more than doubled over jobs requiring less preparation.

There has been a 68% increase in jobs requiring more preparation.

Yet, Americans are still skeptical that college is the way to prepare for the working world:

  • 16% of adults think a bachelor’s degree prepares students “very well”
  • 21% think it prepares students “not too well”
  • 8% believe it prepares students “not well at all”

If you’d like to know some of the ways that can help you get ahead in the job market in addition to a college degree (or besides a degree), then check out the infographic below.
