China Youth recently republished an article by Legal Evening News on the unemployment rate for 2008 college graduates. The report revealed that the popular majors such as Law, English, Management and International Trade were among the top unemployment categories for the past two consecutive years. Civil Engineering had the highest employment rate, and the Medical field had the lowest income. Experts suggested that this situation was largely because, a few years ago, universities had been setting up majors solely by following the trend.
