College graduation season is approaching fast, which means were also heading for the annual round of horror stories about the job market for young B.A.s. At least, I expect we are, because said market is still a mess.
You can spend a long, long time arguing about precisely how bad freshly minted grads have it these days and why. But for now, let's stick to broad strokes. In its recent chartbook on youth joblessness, the Economic Policy Institute reported that roughly 8.5 percent of college graduates between the ages of 21 and 24 were unemployed. That figure is based on a 12-month average between April 2013 and March 2014, so its not a perfect snapshot of the here and now. Still, it tells us that the post-collegiate job market, just like the rest of the labor market, certainly isnt nearly back to normal. (For comparison, the unemployment rate for all college grads over the age of 25 is 3.3 percent, which is also still higher than normal.) More worrisomely, the EPI finds that a total of 16.8 percent of new grads are underemployed, meaning theyre either jobless and hunting for work; working part-time because they cant find a full-time job; or want a job, have looked within the past year, but have now given up on searching.
