Data from the Department of Education show the employment level of full-time college students peaked at 52% in 2000 and currently sits around 39%. The percentage of employed part-time students didn’t nosedive until 2005, but is now on the same trajectory as the full-time students. There is a laundry list of factors that might explain why fewer and fewer undergrads are working, such as the economy, availability of financial aid, cultural issues, or not trying to find a job because they assume they won’t be able to find one. However, jobs that do not require a college degree are being sought not just by other college students, but non-students who found themselves out of work after the economy flew off the tracks.
