You are an “Early Career” individual if you are: (1) A student seeking summer internships; (2) A student approaching graduation or recent graduate from two-year community college, four-year university, post-graduate or professional schools, vocational programs, or a professional licensed program such as Nursing and Dental Hygiene; or (3) Someone who has left the workforce for an extended time period of multiple years and recently returning to the workforce.

Studies have shown how quickly you get a good job – as self-defined by the respondents (U.S. adults aged 18 and older who earned a bachelor’s degree between 2010 and 2016) in the study - immediately after graduation affect the salary amount over both the short and long term than graduates who took longer to find a first good job. Gallup in September 2018 reported that graduates who had a good job upon graduation are 2.4 times more likely to be earning $60K or more in personal income than graduates who took two to less than 12 months. The fact that graduates who found a good job quickly earn more and higher wages faster suggest the importance for Early Career to invest the time and incur the expense to learn job search essential skills in order to prosper by earning more later.
