WASHINGTON (AP) - The college class of 2012 is in for a rude welcome to the world of work.

I've hired a lot of junior positions this last year. Speaking personally as a hirer, as long as the applicant has a Bachelor's, I don't really care what it is as long as its not something really dumb/narrow. I do care about their ability to impress me on the tests/interview material. I think the main problem with college is that the students don't realize it's not about the piece of paper, it's about what you learn and how you can apply those lessons.

1 out of 2. To quote some DUmmy from last week, that would be almost 50%.
