College Grads Enter Tough Job Market


Aired 5/22/09

Thousands of local young people will graduate from college this weekend. The class of 2009 will face a tough road ahead as they prepare to enter a job market with near double-digit unemployment in California, and the rest of the U.S. What opportunities are out there for this year's college graduates?

Gloria Penner: I was at the University of Arizona graduation last weekend and heard the same refrain from the new graduates who were in conversation with their proud families. "They're not hiring." So, what opportunities are available for this year's college graduates, as they enter into a national job market with near double-digit unemployment?
