Quote Of The Week: Millennial Career Advice You Need To Share With Your Kids

“College—and even a secondary degree—is the best ticket out of young workers’ economic quagmire. Millennials with a bachelor’s degree take home median annual earnings of $45,500, a slight increase from the college grad take-home pay of previous generations at the same age.”

“But for millennials without a college degree, which is most of them, earnings have fallen since their parents’ and grandparents’ time. Now the median difference between a high school diploma and a bachelor’s degree is almost $20,000 a year—a gap that will only grow as degree holders earn promotions and those without higher education compete for a pool of jobs that has been shrunk by automation and outsourcing.”
