The second graduating class of this pandemic is about to enter the workforce. There are still very few jobs and thousands of grads desperate for them. Plus, this year's grads have the added benefit of an entire year without mentorships, extra-curricular activities or all the other ways young adults make themselves more attractive to recruiters. (Also ... this year, what recruiters?!)
What can governments and the private sector do to help spur the hiring of young adults? What kinds of work could they do? We've seen massive employment pushes before, and we still enjoy their legacies today. If we wanted to make sure today's graduates aren't still living at home waiting to launch a year from now, what has to be done and who has to do it?
