After slaving away for four or more long years, many college graduates are excited to start their new life after graduation. For years they have used the hope of a successful career to fuel them during the grueling all-nighters that preceded any big deadline. However, for recent college graduates, landing their dream job post-graduation may be harder than it seems... CNBC reports that the pandemic could be worse than the Great Recession for college graduates' job prospects. There has been an overall decrease in labor participation for new college grads over the last two years. So, how do recent college grads fare in the new labor market? Should grads jump right into a job search? Could this be a good time to pause and collect experiences that will strengthen their career prospects for job down the road? Education Expert, Ravi Hutheesing, author of PIVOT: Empowering Students Today to Succeed in an Unpredictable Tomorrow, and previous diplomate for the U.S. State Department joins us to discuss what new college grads should expect in the current job market.
