New government figures on unemployment show that even though general employment figures are getting better, times are still tough for recent college grads. A story in the Los Angeles Times shows that the unemployment rate for 20-24 year olds rose to 16% in November, up four-tenths of a percent.

It means competition for those entry-level jobs is tougher than ever, and you have to stay on top of your game, not rest for a minute, and use every resource at your disposal to find that first job.
