Congratulations, Graduate, Now Find a Job!

Hosted by

This year's college graduates face the worse entry-level job market since the dot-com bust of the late 1990's. The National Association of Colleges and Employers, or NACE, shows employment opportunities down 22% from last year, and some companies that promise jobs won't actually hire until next Fall. Some graduates with loans to pay off are looking at volunteer work and unpaid internships that only provide room and board. We hear the best and worst prospects, talk with college kids about their expectations and hear about one scheme for taking advantage of trouble.
