Job Market

Harvard students and administrators responded calmly to a prediction by Money magazine that 2.7 out of 10 million college graduates in the next seven years will not find jobs which will use their college education.

"I'm not really concerned with the doom and gloom reports," Robert J. Ginn Jr., Director of the Office of Career Services and Off-Campus Learning, said yesterday.

"This is Harvard," he added, saying the statistics are not "of particular personal concern to Harvard students."

Several undergraduates said yesterday their fellow students seemed very anxious about job prospects, but they themselves were not worried about their own success.

One student, who refused to be identified, said "When I've had summer jobs, I've found I'm smarter than most people."
