Luckily for the grads of this year, the market seems to be turning around from a significant low point. I wonder how this might affect the overall career trajectories of 2015 grads versus those around 2010, who may have been without employment or severely underemployed for several years after graduation.

I'm honestly just extremely glad that I graduate in 2016 rather than in 2008. The job market is turning around and the economy is gaining steam. It once again looks like a pro-growth job market.
