As graduation is quickly approaching for seniors, many are anticipating finding their dream job in an effort to succeed in the ever-changing job market and fluctuating economy.
The Associated Press analysis of available government data, reported that about 53.6 percent of Americans who have bachelor’s degrees and are under the age of 25 are unemployed or hold lower wage jobs.
This is a bleak outlook for those who are preparing to enter the workforce. But, Gayle Christensen of Employment Entrepreneur Specialist at the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs offers some advice to graduating seniors.
“Well, I think it’s a little bit easier this year than maybe a couple of years ago, but I think we’re still under the recession so my advice would be to network as much as you can in many possible ways,” Christensen said. “Let people know that you are coming out of school and you’re job searching, or going to job fairs and different kinds of events.”
