If you graduated this spring and still haven't found a job, you're not alone.
In June, just 80,000 jobs were added and the unemployment rate remained at 8.2 percent.Last month, the rate grew to 8.3 percent with 163,000 jobs added.
Though the numbers look bleak, some reports aren't as dismal. Philip D. Gardner, director of the Collegiate Employment Research Institute at Michigan State University, expects that the the number of college grads to land jobs will rise 7 percent from last year.
It's good to know where the numbers lie, but you can't let them hamper your search results.
