Where do Graduates Work?
WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW
Education level is the strongest correlate of employment and income levels.
Statistics Canada, 2010
BC UNIVERSITY GRADS
CLASS OF 2008
5 years after leaving school:
4.7 percent unemployment rate
96% working in jobs that require a post-secondary degree
The Research Universities'
Council of British Columbia, 2014

69% of students reported that chance events influenced their career decision (Bright, Pryor, & Harpham, 2005)


What percentage of people said their careers were influenced by chance events?
