Perhaps it's because America's students have watched their parents suffer through jobs that don't inspire them -- just to make a living. But today's students do not seem to be all about the money when it comes to their careers. A recent study shows that 72 percent of students want a career that aligns with their passion, and more than half say that they would accept lower pay and fewer benefits for a job they are passionate about.
