Welcome to life in the real world.

I'll echo what the others have said. Education is not the same thing as job placement. College gives you the tools. What you do with those tools, what restrictions you or others place on the use of those tools-- those things are not things colleges can control.

I read a different article and it says that she thinks she should get interviews because of her perfect attendance and her 2.7 GPA.

CHEMISTRY
They actually announced on our local news last night that education and nursing were the most employable jobs while engineering, business, and humanities were the least employable. They have over 400 graduates in education at LSU for this spring and graduated a similar amount last year. My daughter was lucky and actually had a job before graduation but we were able to pull some strings for her but many of her friends that graduated with her last spring still do not have job.
