Chinese-American Graduates Facing Stiff Competition for Jobs

World Journal, Posted: Jul 21, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO Almost two months after graduation, many Chinese American graduates remain jobless due to recession and great competition from experienced workers, reports the World Journal.

A recent mechanical engineering graduate told the newspaper none of his friends -- not even those who graduated from well-known colleges had been able to find jobs. Many young Chinese who had managed to get job interviews also failed to secure jobs because they found it hard to compete with experienced workers who are back looking for employment market after being laid off.

Career counselors recommended graduates go back to school while waiting for the economy to turn back. According to Employment Development Departments statistics, the unemployment rate among 16- to 24-year olds in California has reached 18 percent, and increase of 70 percent from last year.
