Think it’s easy to find a job with a Humanities degree? Think again! This week we discuss some of the perils and pitfalls plaguing Humanities graduate students seeking stable employment opportunities. Though there has been a general increase in graduate student enrollment, cost of tuition fees and student loan debt there has not been an increase in available permanent jobs to accommodate the increasing numbers. More and more students and graduate are forced into contract-based jobs with little stability. We discuss these issues and the current (un)employment scene. What can be done to turn this situation around for the next crop of graduating students?
