The collapse of the job market will impact one group of job seekers harder than any other group: spring college graduates, according to Time.com. A study released by the National Association for Colleges and Employers yesterday found that companies plan to hire 22 percent less graduates this year than they did in 2008. The silver lining is that there are several new positions under the Obama Administration. The government is the only entity planning to hire more grads this year than last. Recent college graduates can also apply to work directly with the Cabinet through White House internships. Visit whitehouse.gov/about/internships/ for more information. —CJ
