Does attending a Christian college or university hurt your chances of employment? The answer is “no,” according to a study highlighting attitudes about faith-based higher education.
The study, conducted by the Barna Group in collaboration with the Association for Biblical Higher Education, asked hiring managers about their general willingness to hire Bible or Christian college graduates, and about their perceptions of these graduates’ preparedness in a variety of areas.
Researchers found that when it comes to employing graduates, most employers don’t indicate clear bias toward or against graduates of Bible colleges or Christian universities. In fact, a majority of employers (69 percent) said they are “just as likely” to call these candidates as any others for an interview.
Unsurprisingly, 72 percent of Christian employers are somewhat more likely to call graduates of a Bible or Christian college, while employers of another faith or no faith are somewhat less likely.
Based on the data, it’s reasonable for these graduates, depending on the religious inclinations of a particular hiring manager, to “expect occasional pushback based on assumptions about their alma mater,” the authors said.
The majority of employers also say they expect Bible college and Christian university graduates to be “very well” or “somewhat prepared” when it comes to maturity, effective communication and teamwork.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
