The Economy Laughs in the Face of Your UC Berkeley Diploma

evil-owlTo confirm our worst fears/what we already know, the Chron ran an article today about how hard it will be to find a real job once you graduate [1]. Thanks. As if combing through craigslist isn’t sad enough already.

Prolonging your grad date might not work either, if that’s what you’re thinking. Seniors, you’re screwed. Juniors, you’re probably screwed too. We hope you plan on getting a Ph.D. in something useful.

Meanwhile, we’re in a nursing shortage [2]. Hint hint.

Or, if you want to denounce your materialistic lifestyle and you’re into that whole hippie thing, there’s always wwoofing [3].
