Jobless graduates (15 Nov 2001)


Several years ago, getting a university education was a one way ticket to a job. But as the economy slid and vacancies shrink, graduates are floundering. In fact, they now form the largest unemployed sector. Official data from the third quarter of this year show only 3,763 jobs available for nearly 15 thousand fresh graduates. Human resources experts say the lack of jobs has meant that new university graduates have to settle for wages which were unacceptable ten years ago. Others opt to go for further education rather than work for peanuts. And as producer Dikky Sinn reports, still others will take jobs unrelated to their fields of study, in the hope of gaining work experience
