Recently, I was looking for jobs on the construction management website when I noticed a Daily Universe article from February that furthered their claim of 100% placement at graduation and average salaries above $50,000. This is not true. Maybe I was the first, but I didn’t have a job when I graduated in 2001, and there were others without jobs. I eventually got an internship and then a job that didn’t last long because of the economy. I’ve essentially been unemployed for ten months now. I can’t get piddly jobs, let alone $50k plus jobs.
I admit that besides the economy, I am mostly to blame for my situation, getting grades that were middle of the pack, and not working while in school. But it frustrates me to see them misrepresent the program and build it higher than it actually is.
