College graduates’ job prospects improve somewhat

The Labor Department said the unemployment rate for 2013 college graduates — people ages 20 to 29 with a four-year or advanced degree — was 10.9 percent. That compares pretty well with 13.3 percent in 2012 and was the lowest it has been since 7.7 percent in 2007 before the start of the Great Recession.
