LAS VEGAS - More than 2,700 College of Southern Nevada students will graduate Monday night. Many graduates, however, are discovering few job opportunities once they enter the workforce.
Half of the graduates are going to transfer to universities such as UNLV, but approximately 1,400 are entering Las Vegas' job market.
Some are struggling to find work in an economy that seems to be turning around. CSN Career Services Director Kelly Wuest says the job market is slightly worse than last year.
She's helped approximately 1,000 students try to find work. Half of those students have job offers. The others are still searching.
Their degree choice may play a factor. Applied sciences degrees, which are technical in nature, have helped graduates find jobs quickly.
Wuest says one reason for the lack of hiring is many new graduates are tentative about their next moves.
