Does A College Degree Guarantee A Job?
A college degree does not prevent graduates from being affected by external factors in the job market.
Automation is taking over jobs once provided to those with a degree.
The lack of jobs is so great that the "
" concept is gaining strength.
job market changes
while a person is in college. A field that had jobs at the start of the pursuit might not have any when they get out. That could make a person with the degree not have a job at the end (a.k.a. graduating and looking for a job).
The reason it doesn't is because recently, there has been a
boon of unemployment across the country
. If many adults who actually have work experience can't get a job in this day and age, college students will not have much of a better chance (especially with no experience).
