As you finish your degree and head out into the job world, what kind of job will you have? Will your job pay you what you're worth? Probably not. Will it provide you with an impressive benefits package, 401K, and an abundance of vacation days? Not likely. Will it represent the humanist values that you hold? Maybe.

While there is not much that you can do about the first two, you can influence the last. You can encourage employers to be socially and environmentally responsible through the Graduation Pledge of Social and Environmental Responsibility. Students at over a hundred colleges and universities around the world are signing this pledge that asks students to vow to "…explore and take into account the social and environmental consequences of any job" they consider and "will try to improve these aspects of any organizations" for which they work.

Start a campaign at your school. Visit www.graduationpledge.org to get started.
