Question by Yay Ah!: Is it harder to find a job if a college (or graduate) student graduates during a recession?
A lot of my peers tell me that I need on-campus recruiting in order to obtain an entry-level job within my field. However, on-campus recruiting is virtually ineffective in my school nowadays. I’m afraid that once when the economy picks up and I don’t have any experience on my resume, it’ll be very hard for me to find a job. Is there any way around this? Or is this just bad luck?

Best answer:

    depends on the line of work but some companies may prefer a recent grad as they can pay you at a base rate vs an experienced Sr. level.

  2. Spreedog says:

    Yes, of course it is more difficult to find an entry level job in a recession like this unless you are in the medical field. My daughter has been looking all year in the San Francisco area where unemployment is 12%. “Jesse’s” idea of building a resume of volunteer work is a good one. That is what my daughter has been doing.

  3. Chuckles says:

    Unfortunately it is. However a lot depends on your major as well. Without knowing that a meaningful answer cannot be given.

    There are many majors that do not lead to a job, even in good times. On the other hand, the better engineering graduates are still finding little trouble finding work.

    Others like my daughter have to keep rejecting offers because she wants to go for her doctorate in engineering.
