Tyler, TX (KETK) — The whole country is being hit hard by the poor job market. But young adults without job experience have especially been feeling the brunt.
Youth unemployment is at its highest rate since World War 2. Many college graduates are moving back in with their parents, putting off marriage and raising a family.
Many college grads are also looking to find employment closer to home, rather than expanding their job searches across state lines.
But those without a college degree have it even more difficult. Young males without a degree are seeing increasingly less jobs, due to a lower demand for blue collar employment.
Teen employment is lower than 30%.
College advisors say that potential college students should be mindful of what a university has to offer concerning their graduate employment rates.
