You Have A Diploma But Do You Have A Job?

Posted: Updated:

What is the situation for soon-to-be college grads? A new poll finds more students may be graduating college without having a job lined up.

Accenture surveyed about a thousand recent grads and a thousand soon-to-be grads. Only 11-percent of this year's graduating students said they'd secured a job before graduation. That's down from the 16-percent that reported the same last year.

Despite those number's this year's graduating class seems optimistic. A majority of them say they expect to find a job in their field soon.
