Do you have a college degree? Do you have a job? You might well be overqualified for whatever it is you’re doing, suggests a new study, as almost half college-educated Americans are apparently in jobs they’re overqualifed for. And the way things are going, that’s how it will be for recent graduates down the line as well.
The study released by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity (a non-profit) points to this phenomenon as just how the way things are these days, and will likely continue for the next decade.
“It is almost the new normal,” says the study’s lead author and the center’s founder, Richard Vedder, via USA Today.
