Survey: Collegiate Employment Research Institute (30 minutes)

I want to bring to your attention a very important study, lead by the Collegiate Employment Research Institute at Michigan State University, which provides valuable information to our students transitioning into the labor market. You may have participated in past surveys and I encourage you to do so again as your participation is critical in sustaining this project.  Through your efforts we will be able to provide graduating students, as well as recent graduates, their advisors, and talent managers, such as yourself, valuable and timely information.  Labor market conditions remain challenging; uncertainty abounds, making students graduating this year very anxious. We hope you or a colleague in your organization can take 25 to 30 minutes to complete the surveyEven if you will not be hiring college graduates during the 2012 – 2013 academic year, the information you provide will help us develop an accurate picture of this year’s employment prospects for college students.
