FARGO— North Dakota State University graduates are bucking a national trend that says nearly half of recent college graduates are still looking for a job.
Monster.com interviewed 1,000 graduates from the class of 2020 about their post college job search. Of those asked, 45% reported they're still looking to land their first job.
In a survey of NDSU's class of 2020 graduates, 88% reported they've found a job or are continuing their education.
NDSU officials say the pandemic may have had an effect on students applying to jobs, but there are employment opportunities out there.
"There are jobs available and everyday there's something new so keep looking, don't give up," says Becky Bahe, Director of NDSU Career and Advising Center.
The survey also found 2021 graduates are expecting it to take up to five months to find the perfect job.
