Many current job seekers believe that the grass is greener on the entrepreneurial side of the fence, according to a recent survey.
Thirty-three percent of respondents across multiple generations--Gen Z, Gen Y, Gen X and the Baby Boom generation--said they wish they had opted to start a business rather than pursue a college degree.
The results came from a survey by Millennial Branding, a Gen Y research and consulting firm, and Beyond.com, an online career site, which asked nearly 3,000 job searchers about their opinions of the value of a college degree.
As a refresher, Gen Z includes those who are ages 20 or younger, Gen Y (ages 21-32), Gen X (ages 33-49), and Baby Boomers include those ages 50-68.
They aren't alone in their belief that an undergraduate degree doesn't necessarily lead to career success.
The survey also asked 281 HR professionals to weigh in, and--though they acknowledged that academic success helps candidates in the hiring process--they indicated that it's not among the top things that they're looking for.
