The Class of 2014, “The Most Indebted Ever,” with average student-loan debt of $33,000, needs jobs. However, according to the U.S. Labor Department, unemployment among 2013 graduates was 10.9%, still weaker than prerecession. What’s more, a 2013 study conducted by McKinsey & Company found that 41% of graduates from top universities — the presumably best and brightest — could not land jobs in their chosen field after graduation. Some 260,000 college graduates were stuck last year working at or below the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. What can you do?
