Earlier this month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released the latest unemployment data. And for all your recent college graduates, soon to be college graduates, and those a few years removed from college the statistics are certainly not the best of news. The unemployment rate of college graduates is about half that of the national rates. Although this statistic is better than those with a high school diploma (64.9% higher than the national rate), a college education or ever higher is not a guarantee of an excellent job or lifestyle. Although, a higher education does mean a decrease in your chances of unemployment.

Moral of the story: 1. stay in school and obtain as great of an education as you can afford. 2. don't hold out for your dream job. Any job is better than no job...that is until you find your dream job!
