Graduating Into the Recession of 2009


College graduates will line up to toss their graduation caps next month. After the celebration many will find themselves at the back of another line - the line to get a job.
About 22% fewer college graduates will be hired than last year, according to a new survey by the National Association of College and Employment.
Some grads will brave the job market, hide in their parent's basement, volunteer for the Peace Corps, or stay in school.
What should a grad do to ride out the recession? We'll find out, Friday at 9 on The Sound of Ideas®.Edwin Koc, Director of Strategic and Foundation Research, National Association of Colleges and Employers
