— Students selecting a college increasingly consider long-term job prospects, debt – Gail MarksJarvis (DIERSEN: Did you have a job offer when you were about to graduate? Before I graduated from NIU in 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in management, I had accepted a job offer from Firestone Stores. Did you have any debt when you graduated? I did not, and I owned a 1969 Dodge Charger SE. I paid for my college education with the money that earned working part-time for the Park Forest Post Office 1966-1969. In 1971, when I was 22 years old, IRS hired at the GS-7 level, currently $44,853. In 1972, IRS promoted me to GS-9, currently $54,864. In 1973, IRS promoted me to GS-11, currently $66,379. In 1974, IRS promoted me to GS-12, currently $79,563.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Only 46 percent of the students who were about to graduate in 2016 with bachelor’s degrees had a job offer, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which does a survey of graduates each year. That’s an improvement over 2009, when only 41 percent had offers as the nation was coming out of the Great Recession, but it’s far below the 80 percent who were graduating with jobs before the recession, said association researcher Kenneth Tsang. In addition, pay levels have been stuck. Although college costs have been rising faster than inflation and the average college student with student loans leaves college with about $30,000 in debt, the survey has found that salaries aren’t budging. In 2016, the median salary for graduates who found jobs was $47,358, essentially flat for the last five years, Tsang said. Pay ranged from $65,000 for math majors to $31,000 for social science majors and $20,000 for those in the performing arts.)

— Why employers are reaching out to the next generation of workers: Gen Z – Alexia Elejalde-Ruiz (DIERSEN: If you seek a government office or a political office, sooner or later, your critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes will use against you what you did with your summers when you were young. I delivered newspapers and did yard work during the summers of 1962, 1963, and 1964. I washed dishes during the summer of 1965. I cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline during the summer of 1966. I delivered mail during the summers of 1967, 1968, and 1969.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Many teens spend their summers lifeguarding or ice-cream scooping. Not Evon Lopez. Lopez, at 16, spent the summer between her sophomore and junior years of high school interning at Abbott Laboratories. At graduation from the eight-week program last August, she delivered a PowerPoint presentation detailing, among other things, corporate safety initiatives at the north suburban health care company.)
