They told us if we studied hard and got a degree, we'd get a good job after college. But more and more, college grads are finding that that feels like a myth from some earlier time. So what's a degree worth these days? Join Steve Seel and special guests Chris Farrell, MPR personal finance and economics expert, along with Kathy Tunheim, one of Governor Dayton's job creation advisors. We'll look at the job market that new grads are entering: What are their prospects? What do you do while you want for your dream job? And how will graduating into a bad job market affect the rest of their careers?

You're Invited: Policy and a Pint - I got my degree! Why don't I have a job?
It's the quintessential question many young people are asking themselves these days, and may well be the defining query of our generation. We were told that we could do anything, if only we would try, and now that we've worked hard and accumulated great debt to earn our degrees, it doesn't appear anyone's hiring. How long will this last? What are our prospects? And what does this mean for us, and Minnesota? Find out more with Chris Farrell, Kathy Tunheim, and the Citizens League next week!
