Brother, Can You Spare a Dime? (film)Image via Wikipedia

Mark Jurkowitz of the Project for Excellence in Journalism reports that the Univ. of Georgia "Annual Survey of Journalism & Mass Communications Graduates," which elicited responses from 2,500 recent grads, revealed that just slightly more than 60 percent of 2008 bachelor degree conferees had landed full-time jobs in the approximate six months since graduation.

The statistics are the lowest in the study's 23-year history and dim compared to 2007 grads, 70 percent of whom landed jobs in the field. The median salary of $30,000 for bachelor degree recipients remains unchanged from 2006 and 2007 figures.
