Finding a good job is not hard if you are educated enough and qualified A lot of people does not have a stable job its either because they are not happy with their work so they change jobs or the company is not giving the right compensations and incentives to its employees.

i think your comments are very appropriate,but as a fres graduate,i don't know how to do my work well.As the company is new and very small,dosen't have sound a lot of rules and regulations,and i have to do lots of things and most of these things have nothing to my work.As the same time,because our manager is from factory,many things about export he is not very understand,but always arbitrary command.The important thing is our boss give my wages for three months only made tody,but also give me half of the wage.I don't know whether it is worthwhile to stay.

You are right. It is extremely difficult to find a job in China. I am about to graduate from university and keep hunting for jobs. My mom just keep murmuring on me of this same topic daily. I just would like to have a week off first. I do not feel like doing anything now~~

The job market has become very competitive now and is worsen by the economic downturn. It affects everywhere and my country is no better. It is very unfortunate that graduates spend many years in college in the hope of finding a well paid jobs come out frustrated when there are no jobs for them. I think it is very important to choose which course you take. If you take courses that are more technical then the chances are bright for you to get jobs easily.

because the economic downturn is worsen,the job market has become compeitive,it is very bad to graduated student that they spend many years in college in the hope of finging a well job,i think so it is very impotant to choose which course you take,if you take courses that are more techinical then,you can get job easily

I think the practical training is very important to graduates. Generally, you can only learn some theory knowledge from college, but it's not enough for finding a good job. My cousin ever took a practical training in IBM. She will graduate this year, and she has got a very good job. One thing I must to say is that her school is not famous. It's only a very common college.

yes, it is... especially in a recession time like this... a lot of people had been laid off their jobs as well recently here especially those working in the factory and car manufacturing... i feel sorry for them and their family... that's why i try to hang on to my job even though i don't really like it... it is still better to have a job to survive rather than being jobless, isn't it??? take care and have a nice day...

well we have a lot of college and university students around here and i find that a lot of companies will hire them just for the summer. at the company i work for, we hire one or 2, but as for long term work, its a tough market out there.

It is the same in China. The job market is in stagnant. Since the recession period started, Everyone was worrying. So, if you are financially okay, just hang in there. Don't sweat about getting a job after graduation. You might need to take some time to do the research.

Hello friend, Even I am into final year engineering and would be graduating this June. I am an Indian and I am proud to say that even after the toll of recession, the job opportunities here are not affected drastically. I am one of the fortunate ones who was recruited by a company in June last year, one year prior to my graduation. The same company has offered me a good enough salary to start off so I am really happy. I hope you find a good job as well.

Since there is a global financial crisis, newly graduates will have a hard time finding a stable job and would be a burden for them. A lot of workers lose jobs now a days and that would mean that there will be a competition in finding a job. Personally, if you are not just too picky and is willing to sacrifice to work for a job, though not related to your current course, I think you will be able to find a job for the time being as your stepping stone.

i do think it is hard to find stable work. i think there are too many people and not enough jobs. i think that we have too many illegal immigrants here taking up jobs that citizens of this country who pay taxes and are here legally should have. i think that is one of the biggest parts of this bigger problem. even high school kids cannot find jobs because all the immigrants are taking them. if you want to work here and make money you need to be here legally. end of story.

Don't be afraid! U will succeed if u hav interest in ur subject and proper skills in it. A neighbor of mine is working in Chennai with a salary of Rs. 1,00,000 per month.Before that he was earning Rs. 70,000, I think. But, some students who studied with, attended campus interviews with him are still searching jobs. The reason is, he had great skill in his subject while the rest were just scoring marks! So, don't worry! U can do it if u deserve!

I think its very difficult for young kids to find good and stable work after college. Especially with how the economy is today. My stepson is going to start college next year and I truly hope he will be able to find a job after he finishes college. I think its terrible that so many people are having trouble finding secure jobs after all the time and money They spend in school

It is really hard to find a job you wish for. With all the crisis and recession, it is really difficult. Most of the company are having some lay-off.

Well, i live in Italy. I advice you not to come in my country because stable work has disappeared! You can find only temporary jobs for 1 or 2 years and then if the boss of your company decides you are not necessary he can throw you! I think that china has the most increasing economy system therefore maybe in the future you will find a stable job.

education is key to anyones future at this point and time. It is very hard to find work here to and getting harder. I think that things will look up after a while but the types of jobs available will be very different than before. Maybe by the time you graduate there eill be plenty for you. Study hard.

if you are picky type of person,then it hard to find good job..if you get any job opportunities,just grab one,who knows this job can lead you to something greater...me,myself work as database clerk,but i just found out the government need new staff and the salary offered are really good..the experience i got working in my present office,i can apply it to new work place..so,if you are fresh graduate,don't wish you can easily got job offer,most employer want to search for experience worker, not fresh graduate who have not work experience.gain some experience,then try to apply to dream company..that what happen to my country in Malaysia..there are lot's of job but these graduate are really lazy and picky..that's why they will never get good job!
