UW seniors find few jobs open as graduation looms

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- University of Wisconsin-Madison students don't need a federal report to tell them there's a recession.

  They can see it in their job searches.

  Senior David Pianin calls his job hunt "frustrating and depressing."

  Pianin is majoring in finance at UW-Madison's School of Business and had expected to go work for an investment bank.

  But many of those banks are now in bankruptcy or, like the company he worked for last summer, have a hiring freeze.

  Zoology major Andy Flick says his parents were pushing him to look for a job after his May graduation, but now they are encouraging him to wait out the downturn in graduate school.

  UW-Madison officials say they are still seeing recruiters come to campus, although perhaps a bit fewer of them.
