Today's grads are ready to "job surf"
As your new graduate prepares to enter the workforce, remember that he or she probably views that first job differently than you saw the start of your career.
Nearly 65 percent of young adults said they plan to "job surf" during their early careers, according to a survey published last year by Michigan State University's Collegiate Employment Research Institute.
That means today's young adults are more apt to switch companies and even careers until they find something they feel best suits them.
The study also found that while young adults tend to be more self-confident than other age groups, they're also less sure about their goals.
It's probably no coincidence that 65 percent of the young adults who responded to the survey also said they could move back in with their parents if they needed to.
