Financial education begins when graduation ends
On Sundays, we talk about personal finance, so here's a quick quiz: The graduation season is winding down, and all of those new graduates are (a) trying to make sense of their new financial responsibilities as they embark on new careers, (b) suffocating under an avalanche of student loan debt, or (c) moving back home and letting their parents deal with it.
Depending on who you ask, the answer could be (d) all of the above.
Graduates face a variety of financial challenges as they enter the workforce. CPAs have the answers, though, and they're available in these Money Management columns from the American Institute of CPAs and the MACPA:
- Money-wise advice for new grads
- Don’t get swamped by student loan debt
- Avoid money mishaps when children move back into the nest
Read them, then tell us: What's the one piece of financial advice graduates can't live without?
