Only 54 percent of individuals between the age of 18 and 25 are currently employed.
Provo, UT (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
Pew Research reported on Thursday, February 8 that employment for those in the Millennial age group has reached an all-time low. Only 54 percent of individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 are currently employed, the lowest number since data began being reported in 1949. My Colleges and Careers supports Millennial employment by providing educational and job preparation resources for the best careers.
This same study also made a startling comparison between the employment of Millennials and that of all working-age adults. The difference was a solid 15 percent, showing that Millennials are not receiving preference from hiring companies. Millennials were hit the hardest of any group during the Great Recession. And the drop in their employment rates isn’t due solely to the fact many of them chose to return to school in lieu of hunting for a job. Despite increased college enrollments, the percentage of unemployed individuals within the Millennial group has still fallen. As the study mentioned, many individuals are seeking to further their education in order to prepare them to qualify for better jobs and higher pay. My Colleges and Careers has the goal and purpose of helping individuals continue their education by the most efficient means possible.
