"Just 19.7 percent of 2009 grads who applied for a job have one so far, down from 51 percent at the same point in 2007, according to a new survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
Those employers say they plan to hire 22 percent fewer graduates than last year. Another survey by the group shows the average starting salary dropped 2.2 percent from the same time last year."
Let's hope these students do graduate with high-interest credit card debt in addition to their student loans. For the current unemployment rate, the worst in 25 years, check out my previous post here.Above photo: St. Olaf College, Northfield, MN
