A new report from the American Council on Education finds Asian Americans are likely to graduate at a “traditional age” after enrolling in college, but may face tougher prospects after entering the job market.
According to the report, Diversity Matters in US Higher Education, Asian Americans had the lowest rate of continuous employments at 27 percent. Pacific Islander had the highest rate at 50 percent.
Asian Americans are also the least likely to have paid employment one year after graduation at 53 percent. That total includes those with part time jobs.
On the positive side, Asian American men were the most likely to be enrolled in a post graduate degree program.
