A diploma isn’t what it used to be. Approximately 25% of bachelor degree holders under the age of 25, more than 750,000 million in total, are jobless.  More than 750,000 more are underemployed. In total, the group makes up 53% of this population segment. Unsurprisingly, those majoring in sciences, accounting, or other technical fields were much more likely to find employment. These statistics are the worst they’ve been in 11 years and ares another indicator of the disproportionate impact that the “Great Recession” has had on young people. Not enough jobs are being created to accommodate the growing number of college graduates and even those who most qualified are competing with older and more experienced candidates.
