So if they trained in an field that is in need of workers, why could they not find a job?
Biggest reason? Experience. MANY jobs now require experience regardless of education to work in the position. Most up and comers/recent grads don't have the experience, so they don't get the jobs. That's at least the biggest reason I've read about.
Which brings out the "But how do we get experience?" and so far, that's never been answered and 'experience is a must/must have X years of experience' is STILL a requirement.
