US graduates face hard times

Graduates struggle to build careers as study shows more than half of them are jobless or under-employed.

    The unemployment rate in the US has risen for the first time since July last year. Latest figures show that just 69,000 jobs were created in May, the lowest in more than 12 months.

    Economists say employment for those under the age of 25 is at a generational low, and it is only going to get worse as this year's college graduates enter the workforce.

    Recent studies show that more than half of US graduates are either unemployed or under-employed.
