Graduation is fast-approaching, and a new national survey suggests that college seniors are worried about money.
Researchers with Barnes & Noble College interviewed 312 graduating seniors in April. Here’s what they found:
- Salary is important to job-seeking graduates, with 44 percent of respondents citing pay as their top priority in the job hunt.
- Forty-eight percent of respondents are worried about student loans.
- And 68 percent of students listed “earning enough money” as a top concern.
Perhaps due to those pressures, many seniors say they will live with family after graduation, with 35 percent of respondents planning to move back home.
