It's that time of year again – Martin Sheen did it. President Barack Obama, Tom Brokaw, Bill Clinton and Steven Colbert did it too (just to name a few). If you haven’t guessed it yet, these famous names were all commencement graduation speakers in 2013. Students all over the nation are clinging on to the advice from these speakers, taking in every single word that will aid them in their new role as an adult. To the class of new graduates, receiving a diploma means embarking on an increasingly difficult journey through the job market. They’ve no doubt used campus career centers and even good old-fashioned face-to-face networking to begin their careers. New grads have many difficult choices to make during the job search, and considering the well-documented underemployment among America’s recent grads - the stakes are as high as ever.
