With less than three months until members of the Class of 2021 graduate, we hope that students are feeling confident about their post-grad plans, whether it be graduate school, a gap year, or starting a full-time role.

For those seeking full-time positions, there is some great news! According to NACE, the National Association of Colleges and Employers, the average salary projection growth for college graduates ranges from between 2.5% to 7.1%. Some of the industries incorporated in these statistics are computer science, engineering, math/statistics, social sciences, humanities, business, communications, agriculture/natural resources.
