Kip Michael Kelly's insight:

Those math and science degrees pay off after college — humanities, not so much. A survey released Tuesday by the National Center for Education Statistics, provides an interesting snapshot of the nation's educated elite following a crushing economic recession. College grads from private four-year schools earned about the same as those from public four-year schools, about $50,000 a year. But while a paltry 16 percent of students took home degrees in science, technology, engineering or math — so-called STEM disciplines — those who did were paid significantly better. They averaged $65,000 a year compared with $49,500 for graduates with other degrees. The findings are based on a survey of 17,110 students in 2012, about four years after they received bachelor's degrees. The survey found a strong correlation between earning money and highly specialized degrees. More than 95 percent of grads who studied computer and information sciences were employed full time during the survey and earned $72,600 on average. Engineering students reported similar job and salary prospects. Meanwhile, a humanities graduate was more likely to report working multiple jobs and earning a full-time salary averaging $43,100.

How New Grads Can Beat the Odds in Job Market Roulette

How New Grads Can Beat the Odds in Job Market Roulette | Career Management | Scoop.it
With high unemployment and underemployment rates for recent college graduates, the odds of finding a job upon graduation may be low. According to Abby Kohut, a career expert for the career resource website AbsolutelyAbby.com, "Companies aren't hiring as well as they used to. People that are midcareer professionals are having difficulty finding jobs." However, Paul McDonald, senior executive director at human resource consulting firm Robert Half International, says job prospects are good for new grads in accounting, finance, law and communications. "Showing you did something other than just go to school shows drive," McDonald says.
