What Recent Grads Are Looking For

Recent graduates have the right mentality and mindset for temporary employment, as many have admitted to having little staying power both professionally and geographically.

In a recent Adecco survey, only 3 percent said they’d expect to stay at any given job for more than five years. A third (33 percent) expect to stay for three years or less.

Like their expectations of relatively frequent job hopping, recent grads are equally open to relocating. Ninety-four percent said they would be willing to move to a new city for some reason. The top reasons for relocation are higher pay (73 percent), a job offer from their dream company (59 percent) or a job offer in their dream city (51 percent).
