AbstractStudents who are soon to be college graduates are approaching a transitional period in their life, filled with uncertainty and high demands. Graduating college is a huge transitional period, going from full-time student to the real workplace. Millennials that are soon to be graduates are custom to juggling many facets of their lives and making time for school, work, clubs, and friends. But do these soon-to be graduates understand the demands of the "real world" and are they taking in to consideration the conflicts that may arise concerning work-life balance? The purpose of this study is to investigate the attitudes of soon-to-be college graduates, part of the Millennial generation, and their attitudes towards work-life balance. The study captures the attitudes of soon-to-be graduates towards work-life balance in consideration with pursued industry, pursued career path and how much students value work-life balance before entering in to the workplace. This thesis provides understanding of these attitudes and the disconnect between pursued industry and valuation of work-life balance. It also describes suggestions for students and employees in order to foster practices of work-life balance in the workplace.
