Most recent post-secondary graduates find that their degree cannot guarantee stable employment. Christian McCrave, 21, studied engineering at the University of Guelph, but cannot find a job in his field. His most recent job experience on his resume is a sales associate at Winners. McCrave believed that if you work hard at school, you will end up with a good and stable job. However, he found that after graduating, that was not the case. McCrave has applied to over 250 engineering-related jobs and has only landed 4 interviews, with 0 job offers. Unfortunately, he is not the only one in this case. Over 12% of Canadians, who are between the ages of 15 and 24 are unemployed, and more than a quarter have their degrees, but ended up in jobs that do not even require their credentials.
