New York Fed Announces Press Briefing on Labor Market for College Graduates
June 20, 2013

Are Recent College Graduates Finding Good Jobs?

Overview
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York will host a press briefing on labor market conditions for recent college graduates on Thursday, June 27 at 10:00 a.m.

At the briefing, staff economists will present an overview of employment conditions for recent graduates and discuss whether they are having a tougher time today finding jobs that utilize their degrees than in the past. The economists will also present data on employment outcomes by undergraduate major—including unemployment rates, underemployment rates and wages—and discuss some of the implications of these findings for today's young graduates.

The event, part of the New York Fed's Economic Press Briefing series, will also include information and analysis on current economic conditions in the region.

William Dudley, president of the New York Fed, is expected to deliver remarks covering the main topic, as well as the national and regional economy.

A staff panel will answer questions from the media following the presentation.
