Good News for Some Grads

Discussing a recent Georgetown University report , The Chronicle of Higher Education's Beckie Supiano says unemployment rates among college graduates vary by field of study. Compared with recent graduates in non-technical fields, those "who studied health or education" are experiencing significantly lower unemployment rates. Still, Supiano says that "the job security of an industry-oriented major may not coincide with high earnings, the report cautions."

But according to the Financial Post, a new Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers report shows that while "university students graduating next year will face the same stagnant hiring conditions 2011 graduates faced," graduates who do land jobs are likely to earn higher starting salaries than in the past.
