Would you say that a good amount of the people you know from Penn State easily found jobs after graduating?? asked by Anonymous
It’s time for me to get on the old soapbox again. And I know I’m going to get a bunch of shit from random college students that read the blog but this is just my opinion.
I firmly believe that those of my friends that have graduated from this University and found jobs did not get the job just because they went here. Of course the name does hold positive weight within the job market but not as much as people think.
What was more beneficial to my friends landing these jobs was the resources and opportunities that this University provided for them. i.e. career services, job fairs and internships.
In addition to that, most of my friends are majoring in areas that have available job opening and potential. I am not going to badmouth any majors but it’s a known fact that some majors qualify you for a career that has better job opportunities.
And many of the people that I call friends and attend this University have great work ethics and just aren’t going to settle for less. Don’t get me wrong I love this place and will give it credit where credit is due, but when it comes to getting a job upon graduating, its all up to you and not the school’s name.
So to answer your question, A good number of my friends that have graduated have found some form or work. This is not just because they went to this school. They still had to work hard and stay dedicated.
