Class of 2024 Insights Report by LaSalle Network


For the last nine years, LaSalle Network has surveyed graduating classes to understand their evolving priorities and motivators when it comes to their first job and company post-college.

In April 2024, we surveyed 1,500 graduates from the Class of 2024, the first freshmen class to start college at the peak of COVID-19. The global pandemic fundamentally reshaped the college experience for millions, and consequently, reshaped this cohort’s perspective on work, as well.

Here are some key findings from the report:

  1. Graduates are prioritizing community and connection over compensation.
  2. The Class of 2024 is focused on career development and growth, and the data indicates they believe the path to growth means changing companies early on in their career
  3. Recent grads are more open to contract employment than previous cohorts, indicative of the current economic climate, but also signaling more flexibility by this Class
