Students don't have to attend top colleges to get a job
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2013 07:35 AM

As graduation approaches, college students may take an aptitude test to gain a better sense of what type of career is right for them. However, individuals who do not attend one of the nation's top schools may think they face an uphill battle in an already very competitive job market.

If students believe employers will hold their college's reputation against them, they may be worrying for nothing. According to CBS MoneyWatch, officials at many companies understand that not everybody has the opportunity to attend a top institution. Not having a degree from a big-name college is OK.

"It's better to hire a graduate from a B-level college who had an exceptional academic record, as compared to hiring a graduate from an A-level college who had a mediocre or poor academic record," Ford Myers, author of "Get The Job You Want, Even When No One's Hiring," told the news source.

New college graduates may be in luck when it comes to their job search, as the National Association of Colleges and Employers recently announced that employers plan to hire 7.8 percent more new degree holders during the 2013-2014 academic year than they did last year.
