I’m Just Not that Into You

With the approval rating of Congress near single digits, it’s no surprise that new college graduates want anything to do with the government- especially as a potential employer. According to this analysis conducted by NACE, working for the federal government isn’t high on new grads’ list:

The survey of 35,401 students from 599 colleges and universities in all 50 states and the District of Columbia found just 6% of college students surveyed plan to work in government, and just 2.3 % plan to work in federal government.

To add some context – Latinos are significantly under-represented in the federal workforce.
