Grads & Students

The job market for recent college grads is so dismal they are being called "The Lost Generation", victims of a great recession who have fallen behind and may never catch up.

Graduates are seriously stressed, undoubtedly. So, too, are their parents. There are the unemployed of course… and then there are the underemployed. Unable to grab onto the first rung of the career ladder, freshly-minted grads work as waitresses, bartenders, baristas and babysitters - many still living at home. Finally, there are the unhappily employed, grads who are in jobs that just aren't right for them. Clearly, this was not how it was supposed to work.

But doesn't the problem go well beyond the tough job market and a sluggish economy? Doesn’t the problem lie in the job search process itself? Our focus groups of recent graduates certainly think so, describing the world of job boards and hiring agencies as "ineffective, inefficient and insensitive". Perhaps that has been your experience, too. bridgemycareer was created to change all that.
