It’s Saturday morning and the Newshour team is preparing for an in-depth look at university graduates struggling to find work. We’ve received some interesting comments. And we’re pleased that one of our distinguished guests today, the American entrepreneur Doug Hall, has joined the online discussion. He writes: “There has never been a better time to be an innovator – no matter what your career, degree or passion. Industry has never had so many challenges, coming so fast.” Are you a graduate still looking for work and do you agree with Mr Hall? Is the recession an opportunity to be seized?
In just a short while Newshour‘s Roger Hearing will bring together Doug Hall, three recent university graduates from Britain, China, and India, and a representative of Britain’s top universities, Dr Wendy Piatt, to take a close look at what it means to be successful in these troubling times. Do you think the Class of 2009 is cursed? Are you from a country where unemployment is a fact of life, and do you agree with Carol in Uganda, who writes: “Has the recession forced me to change my idea of what it means to be successful? Absolutely not. It has only enriched it.”
