NBC NATIONAL NEWS — College seniors preparing to graduate face the weakest jobs market in more than a decade.
According to government data, more than half of recent graduates are either out of work or employed in positions not requiring a college degree.
Job prospects are best for graduates with degrees in science, education and health fields.
Philosophy, arts and humanities majors were among the least likely to find jobs equal to their education level.
