Binge Drinking In College Can Lead You To This Later:
It might sound cool and that you would have had the best time drinking whole night with your friends at college, but who would have known that this would have such a bad impact on your career.
A new research has found that heavy drinking six times a month could lower the chances for a fresh college graduate to get a job by 10 per cent.
Peter Bamberger of Tel Aviv University in Israel, who is the co-author of the study said: 'The manner in which students drink appears to be more influential than how much they drink when it comes to predicting the likelihood of getting a job upon graduation.'
During the study, the data were collected from over 827 individuals who graduated in the years 2014, 2015, and 2016 from Cornell University, the University of Washington, the University of Florida and the University of Michigan in the United States.
'A student who binge-drinks at least four times a month has a six percent lower probability of finding a job than a student who does not engage in similar drinking habits. Those students who drank heavily six times a month increased their unemployment probability to 10 percent,' said Bamberger.
According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism in the United States, 'binge-drinking' is defined as drinking four or more alcoholic drinks within two hours by a woman and five or more alcoholic drinks within two hours by a man.
The study was recently published in the Journal of Applied Psychology.
