A college degree used to be a ticket to a solid first job and career. This is no longer the case. The current generation of 20-somethings did everything it was told to do—work hard in school, graduate from a four-year university, seek internship and employment opportunities diligently—but far too many of them can’t launch their careers. Jeffrey J. Selingo, author of the new book There Is Life After College, visits Zócalo to explore the rapid change in the education and job markets, and what we need to do to adjust to a very different world of work.
