Where New College Grads Want To Work During The COVID-19 Crisis Tyler Durden Tue, 06/30/2020 – 21:25 Authored by Amanda Stansell of Glassdoor Key Findings During the COVID-19 crisis, new grad-related job openings have dropped 68 percent from this time last year, but new grads are still aspiring to work in tech.
What We Did For this analysis, we used a large sample of real-world job applications started on Glassdoor between May 1, 2020, and May 31, 2020, by users likely to be recent college graduates.
We then used these data to show which employers, metros, and occupations new graduate job seekers are applying to most frequently in the US during the COVID-19 crisis.
New college grads are also applying to some lower paying jobs that have shown resilience during the COVID-19 crisis and often allow remote work options.
New grad job seekers also aspire to work at non-tech companies like Goldman Sachs, EY, and Randstad. Even within industries that have seen job declines in recent months, there are some bright spots of employers still hiring.
