Class of 2014 Faces A Lack Of Job Prospects

The bell tolling at the Georgetown University clock tower is a not-so-subtle reminder to graduates that time is running out to get a job. It is why finance and marketing major Sammy Abdisubhan is suited up today for yet another job interview.

"I think it went well...It was a job interview slash preview day, and it seems like I would get it, but I didn't want to be too certain," the senior says.

With commencement ceremonies taking place on Friday, many Georgetown students are shocked that they are able to walk across that stage without employment waiting for them.

Despite a much-improved economy, the Class of 2014 has found it difficult to land jobs. According to a survey, so far only 17-percent of would-be graduates have jobs lined up. In 2013, 20-percent of grads had jobs already.

Total shame on our POTUS. More shame on O'malley.

More shame on me for not seeing this and being in a position to escape Maryland...

There are plenty (too many!) affirmative action jobs in DC! I see stupid people all the time over here.

It's truly unfortunate that it doesn't take an IQ of 90 or above to simply breathe!
