Hey everyone! Right now with the economy being the way it is, and with the high unemployment rate, what do you think the chances are of getting a job right out of college? How many of you that are going to be graduating this year already have a job in line?

the competition is too high and the quarrel for job is on its peak.The major part of the country being the youth, makes it more difficult to get jobs.So, people are opting to go out of the country for better job opportunities. I think this will be more worst in the future as the population is the same increasing day by day at an accelerating and alarming rate.

I agree with you. I am really nervous about trying to find a job. I graduate in December and still haven't had any luck finding a job. I guess my best bet is to keep looking a trying and hope that an opportunity will come up. But I am really afraid that I won't be able to get a job right away :-(

This what I know will happen for me. I am going to graduate with a lower grade than I could really produce. Then I am going to get a poor paying Job right away. Once it becomes time for my employer to commit to me and give raises or benifits or anything they are going to bail on me. Then I will have a hard time finding a job. This will repeat until I am haveing an impossible time finding a job because I am over qualified or because I have been around so long and am under qualified. Basicly employeers will find any reason to not hire me. At that point I will go back to school and get certified in something new and start all over again until i get a cheap paying managers Job. Then I will have more control over what happens. Thats just how it goes in my industry.
