University Graduates Have Hard Time Finding Job, Initial Survey Finds
(Beijing) – The first academic attempt to survey the country's unemployment conditions revealed that college-educated younger people find it more difficult to land a job, even compared with people who have little formal education.
Last year, 16.4 percent of the urban population aged between 21 and 25 with an undergraduate degree or above said they were unemployed, compared with only 4.2 percent for those in the same age cohort that did not go to school or dropped out before middle school, the report said.
