Good News for Grads: Help (Really) Wanted
Sarah Matusek, The Christian Science Monitor
Toshiki Aburaki, a 2021 University of Maryland graduate, is optimistic about the future. He just landed a gig as an analyst for Deloitte after about a dozen rejections.
His optimism reflects an improving job market that notched modest gains last month. Though it’s still short of pre-pandemic levels, employers added 559,000 jobs in May—around double the jobs added in April. The prospects for recent degree-earners appear better than anticipated, especially since the pandemic has spared college graduates more than those without degrees.
