    ‘Colleges and universities, states, and our country can do more to help prepare students for the critical transition from college to the labor market.’

    Strata CEO Stephen Moret, LSU Alum, talks Talent Disrupted...

    What makes this “Talent Disrupted” report unique? What questions does it answer that haven’t been addressed in previous research? 

    This report breaks new ground in several ways. It is the most in-depth and timely analysis of the underemployment of recent college graduates to date. Using Lightcast’s career histories database, we are able to use a synthetic longitudinal approach to track what happens to college graduates over the first decade of their careers after they graduate, while other researchers have typically been limited by data constraints to analyses of cross-sectional surveys, such as surveys of individuals at a single point in time. We scrutinize many aspects of the college experience, including the characteristics of the college a graduate attended and whether they had an internship, and have grouped majors together in a way that reveals important variations in outcomes among business and STEM majors, for example. Last, we analyzed the minority of graduates who escape underemployment by their starting occupation, major, and whether they earned an advanced degree and, crucially, shed light on the pivotal role of internships in avoiding underemployment.

    As a recent grad, I see why many of my peers are choosing to leave the state

    In what feels like a customary feature of growing up here, New Orleans natives realize we have to leave our hometown to find life-changing opportunities or advance our careers. For a long time, I denied this reality and held steadfast to my belief that our community has all the tools and resources we need to be successful.

    I would watch in resentment as my cousins, aunts, uncles and family friends relocated from the city and state we love. What would the world offer them that we did not already have here?

    With some time and maturity, I started to understand that young professionals are leaving en masse out of necessity, not by choice. This city, its charm, culture and the black-and-gold magic we have come to cherish can only do so much to protect us from the country’s rising cost of living, housing crisis and exploitative job markets.
