According to the Pew Research Center, 56% of 21-28-year-olds have yet to establish independent lives. Additionally, fewer young adults are working than at any time since 1950, and college enrollment is at an all-time high. Personally, I have worked with many young college graduates who have very little direction, lacked any real skills and lack the tools to make the transition from adolescence to adulthood. Most did not take advantage of college internships, picked a particular college major “because it was easy” and really don’t have the financial hardship because mom and dad are still providing financial support. These graduates are what I call “failure to launch”.
- Do you have a college graduate who still can’t find a career direction?
- Does your college graduate lack motivation?
- Does your college graduate have unreal expectations? Trying to get admitted into graduate school when he clearly does not have the talent, skills or GPA.
- Does your college graduate seem to be addicted to video games?
- Does your college graduate still work in jobs that are appropriate for high school students?
- Does your college graduate still need your financial support?
