Workers with College Degrees Hold Majority of Well-Paying Jobs

Here’s some positive news for recent college graduates on the job hunt. According to Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, workers with a bachelor’s degree held 55 percent of the country’s well-paying jobs in 2015. The number marks a 15 percent increase from 1991 when only 40 percent of jobs were held by workers with four-year degrees. The study also found that good jobs for workers with some college experience increased by 11 percent, and jumped 83 percent for workers with associate degrees.

More on the Georgetown study is available on the Inside Higher Ed website.
