Research Regarding College Students & Workplace

Depression is the number one reason students drop out of school, and is a gateway issue that, if left untreated, could lead to other symptoms or suicide. According to the American Psychological Association, there has been a significant increase in the number of students seeking help for serious mental health problems at campus counseling centers since the mid-1990s, with depression at the forefront of the concerns. http://www.bestcolleges.com/resources/top-5-mental-health-problems-facing-college-students/

Research indicates that Depression has been on the rise on college campuses and in the workplace.

Uncertainty,  overwhelm and lack of inspiration plague large numbers of students.  According to Michigan State University’s analysis of over 1,000 college freshmen from ten different schools, depression was the leading factor linked to student dropout.

Stress and Depression are also leading causes of medical disability in the workforce today, costing employers billions.

An increasing number of adults in the workforce suffer from “Career Depression Syndrome” or CDS.

Many college students today choose majors that do not reflect their true interests out of fear they will have difficulty finding a job or earning a good salary.  Well meaning family and friends and popularly advertised research statistics, steer young adults in a more “practical” direction.

“Some students go to college knowing exactly what they want to do. But most don’t. At Penn State, 80 percent of freshmen — even those who have declared a major — say they are uncertain about their major, and half will change their minds after they declare, sometimes more than once. How to decide?”http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/04/education/edlife/choosing-one-college-major-out-of-hundreds.html

Lastly, the choice of major can have a significant positive or negative effect on the student experience, affecting retention, engagement, student learning, academic standing, setting of academic and career goals, and more. For example, in a 2006 Canadian study, researchers followed 80,574 students in eighty-seven colleges during a five-year period and showed that good grades are related to having a major close to one’s personality. Most impressively, they found that congruence predicted overall grade-point average (GPA) after five years better than ACT scores (Jones, 2012).”
