In March 2014, in partnership with Purdue
University and the Lumina Foundation, Gallup
launched the first ever nationally representative
sample of college grads in the US.
The idea is to start to look at the quality of
employment and quality of life –
Much different than, “Are you employed?” and
“How much money do you make?”
Gallup sorted on those college grads who rated
their lives the highest and found six emotional
and experiential opportunities for students that
predict your likelihood to have a better job and
1. Professors who made you excited about learning.
2. Professors who cared about you as a person.
3. A mentor who sat and thought about your future with you.
4. Extremely involved in extracurricular activities.
5. Had a project that took more than a semester or more to
6. Had an internship or job where the student could apply what
they were learning in the classroom.
These seem like fairly obvious opportunities.
But when we ask what percentage of college
grads are actually having these experiences….
ONLY 3% of college grads
land on all six.
