Baccalaureate and Beyond: A First Look at the Employment Experiences and Lives of College Graduates, 4 Years On (B&B:08/12) (July 8, 2014)
This report presents initial findings about the employment outcomes of bachelorís degree recipients approximately 4 years after they completed their 2007--08 degrees. These findings are based on data from the second follow-up of the Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:08/12), a nationally representative longitudinal sample survey of students who completed the requirements for a bachelorís degree during the 2007--08 academic year. The study addresses questions related to bachelorís degree recipientsí education and employment experiences and includes two follow-ups. The first follow-up, which was conducted 1 year after graduation, explored both undergraduate education experiences and early postbaccalaureate employment and enrollment. This second follow-up, conducted in 2012, examines bachelorís degree recipientsí labor market experiences and enrollment in additional postsecondary degree programs through the 4th year after graduation.
