According to an AP study released this week, 53% of young college graduates are out of work or underemployed. The alarming figures have created quite a buzz in just about every major news outlet, not to mention all manner of higher education and economics blogs.
The report ties in closely with a story we ran in the winter 2012 issue of The Delta detailing the possibility of a higher education bubble. In the process of examining the bevy of contributing factors, we pondered the possible silver lining for fraternities, namely, that Greek organizations can serve to connect job seekers and employers in a tough economic climate.
So we’re curious to know: Are you among the 53% of young graduates struggling to find full employment? Have you ever found a job through a Sigma Nu connection? Did the outlook of finding a job influence your chosen field of study? Share your experience in the comments section and we’ll compile and share them in a later post.
