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.
