4 reports that caught our eye the week of August 23, 2020

CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four reports that we found interesting this week:

Study: Changes in the socioeconomic situation of Canada’s Black population (Statistics Canada)

Although this study sheds light on some of the issues faced by the Black population, including low-income status, it also shows the broad diversity of the socioeconomic situations and conditions of this population.

Moving on up: ‘first in family’ university graduates in England (Oxford Review of Education)

This paper finds “first in family” (FiF) university graduates in the UK are less likely to graduate from elite universities and are at greater risk of dropout in general. It also finds FiF students are more likely to study Law, Economics and Management.

Risk, resilience, and rebuilding communities: The state of Ontario nonprofits three months into the pandemic (Ontario Nonprofit Network)

Three months into the COVID-19 crisis, Ontario’s non-profits and charities face new challenges and more uncertainty. The impacts on the sector, its workers, volunteers and the communities they serve are becoming more pronounced as the economic crisis deepens.

2020 Fall Recruiting Student Sentiment Survey Report (Parker Dewey)

Parker Dewey surveyed over 3,000 students currently enrolled for the fall semester to understand how they want to engage with prospective employers. When asked what they needed in the next six months to help secure a job after graduation, more than 77% of students said they were seeking “more experiences to build my resume and get my foot in the door with employers.”
