WHERE DO GRADUATES WORK?
Making a career decision used to be the goal. It should no longer be the goal. We have no way of recommending what anyone’s future occupation should be. The world is changing too fast for us even to be sure what occupations will exist tomorrow.

69% of students reported that chance events influenced their career decision
