We conducted the 2022 Career Interest Survey, the 13th overall, for the National Society of High School Scholars. This study of over 11,495 students took place between February 13 to March 7, 2022, and discussed the attitudes and goals of high-achieving high school and college-aged individuals. Of particular interest were opinions in regards to education, employment, career planning, and social and civic engagement. The study also examined these student’s top 100 universities and top 100 employers of choice.
