http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2010/news/1002/gallery.discouraged_workers/index.html This girl graduated with an MA in marketing in 07 has has not been able to land a job in 3 years . So do you think the problem is the person or the market. It is like those people who go through 5 divorces, at some point it aint the people you chose to marry. She is 29, Graduated in 07 making her 26 when she graduated. 8 years in college??? for an MA in marketing?
