Recent U.S. college graduates disillusioned, underemployed: poll – Yahoo! News

NEW YORK (Reuters) – More than 40 percent of recent U.S. college graduates are underemployed or need more training to get on a career track, a poll released on Tuesday showed. The online survey of 1,050 workers who finished school in the past two years and 1,010 who will receive their degree in 2013 also found that many graduates, some heavily in debt because of the cost of their education, say they are in jobs that do not require a college degree. Thirty-four percent said they had student loans of $30,000 or less, while 17 percent owed between $30,000 to $50,000.

… More than half of graduates said it was difficult finding a job, but 39 percent were employed by the time they left college. Sixty eight percent said they are working full time, while 16 percent are in part-time positions.
