For those who have already graduated from college the job market isn’t looking so great, thanks to the coronavirus. 

According to Forbes, as of June 2020, there were 73% fewer entry level jobs available.

Pew Research Center says young adults have the highest rate of unemployment during the pandemic. In May, it was 25.3% percent among those 16 to 24-years-old, 12 percentage points higher than any other age group.

Joining Currents News to discuss the job market for college grads is Chris Hughes, the Associate Director of Career Development at St. Francis College in Brooklyn. He shares his advice for those who have just graduated college, or are entering their final year.
