Parent Involvement in the College Recruiting Process: To What Extent? CERI Research Brief 2-2007
Collegiate Employment Research Institute (NJ1)
Parents' increasing involvement in their children's transition from college to work has grabbed the attention of the media. Every time the author talks with employer groups, he hears similar stories about the pervasive presence of parents in the recruiting process. At the same time, numerous employers questioned the presence of parents in the workplace as they have not experienced this phenomenon with previous generations. In an effort to move away from anecdotal stories, the author and his colleagues probed employers who responded to Michigan State University's 2006-2007 recruiting survey about the extent of parental involvement and the activities parents are likely to engage in. This brief provides information provided by 725 employers on these topics.
