Ignore The Economy, College Grads

College grads, time to black out the negative news


“Half of college grads have jobs that don’t require diplomas,” “Half of all grads have moved back in with their parents,” “College grads face bleak job prospects” – okay, we get it. Times are tough, there’s no doubt about that at all. But how does it help you to keep reading day by day individual horror stories of struggling college grads?

The real thing is, as a college graduate, if you have a job now, you can still sympathize with those who are struggling – you probably went through that rough patch at one point in your life to get that very first job. There’s nothing wrong with being able to reminisce and relate.

Unfortunately, if you are a college graduate who does not have a job yet, you have to start questioning the effects of reading such dreadful stories on the regular. I’m not staying stick your head in the sand and ignore reality, because unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 4 years you probably know the job market isn’t that great now. The point is that you should really start to ignore – yes, ignore - the horrific headlines regarding what college graduates are going through right now. I mean it.

If you are willing to move to another city or state to land a job, then by all means do pay attention to the unemployment rates. If you have no intention of ever doing this then don’t concern yourself with places you don’t live in, whether better or worse.
