Students who report participating in work-based learning during postsecondary education are more likely to be employed after graduation, according to a Gallup-Purdue index.
More than 70 percent of recent graduates who strongly agreed that they had experienced applied jobs or internships as undergraduates are currently working full-time, compared to 56 percent of those who strongly disagreed that they experienced work-based learning. The difference is particularly wide for those who graduated college since 2010; for those who graduated before 2010, graduates who took part in work-based learning are also more likely to be employed, but the gap is not as large.
Previously, I reported about another set of findings from this same poll, which demonstrated that those who participated in work-based learning in postsecondary education are more likely to be engaged employees.
