Graduate unemployment at highest for over a decade

Figures released by The Office of National Statistics (ONS) show that ONE in FIVE university leavers who entered the labour market failed to find a job last year. Graduate unemployment is now at its highest level since 1995. While unemployment in the UK has risen from 5.2% to 7.9%, graduate unemployment - graduates available and looking for work but who can't get a job - has risen from 10.6% to 20%.
