The Great Recession's lost generation

About 60% of recent graduates have not been able to find a full-time job in their chosen profession, according to job placement firm Adecco…

But long stretches of unemployment are only part of the problem young job seekers face.

Adecco also found that 18% of recent grads have been forced to turn to full-time jobs outside their field of study, often jobs for which a college degree is not required.

Many others are underemployed, or working part-time or temporary jobs and internships.
