Social Media Means More Than Salary to Some College Students

The allure of digital freedoms are more important than a higher-paying job to some.


GW's Baker says that although the allure of a higher salary is tempting for a newly minted college graduate, having this flexibility is more important at this stage in her career.

"I would take a job based more on the ability to have those freedoms as opposed to a higher paying salary," she notes. "You obviously don't want to spend half of your workday browsing social media sites, but if you need a break [or] some sort of creative inspiration, it can serve as a great tool. And I think if that means having a cut in your salary so you can have that freedom, in the beginning, I think that's OK."
