EmploymentCrossing Finds 22,000 Entry-level Job Openings in Face of
Reports of Overeducated and Underemployed College Graduates
Inspite of media reports claiming college graduates unable to find jobs in their fields resulting
in huge underemployment among that segment, EmploymentCrossing.com has found a high
number of entry-level jobs.
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2013 -- Job search website EmploymentCrossing.com has been able to
track down 22,000 entry-level jobs across the United States. The figures are in sharp contrast to media reports
of the economy being saturated with overeducated college graduates who have to work in jobs not utilizing
their degrees and skills.
Most media reports are being based on the findings released by the Center for College Affordability and
Productivity which reported that there were 1.7 million college graduates employed as “retail sales person”,
“cashier” and “waiters and waitresses”. 15 percent of taxi drivers today have a college degree, compared to less
than 1 percent in 1970. 48 percent of college graduates are also working jobs that do not require a four-year
college education according to the Department of Labor.
EmploymentCrossing.com however has been able to track down thousands of jobs in industries that usually hire
huge numbers of college graduates. CEO Harrison Barnes says that besides the 22,000 entry-level jobs tracked
down by the site; there are over 53,000 job openings in the education sector and 135,000 in nursing.
