Gen Y Can’t I Get a Job? [Infographic]

The average college graduate in the US is $25,000 in debt, but more than half of all these recent grads are unemployed. It’s not just the less-than-stellar economy; there are many reasons that Generation Y—that is, the generation made up of those born in the 80s and 90s—can’t seem to get a job.

Gen-Y has a lot going on: they’re tech-savvy and creative, with college students nowadays 1.82 times more likely to major in entrepreneurial studies than ever before, and 47% are working at small companies. However, there’s quite a range of problems that these young people face as they try to find employment. They’re overqualified yet overconfident, hooked on social media, and don’t want to leave home to find work. To learn more about young grads and their search for jobs, check out the infographic below presented by Adecco.

Adecco’s Gen Y infographic explores why today’s grads have a hard time finding jobs and what they can do to change that.
