Have you recently graduated college and now you are looking for a job? Congratulations on graduating and getting your degree! Having a college degree is still the best way to avoid unemployment and most employers require at least a bachelor degree before they would even consider someone. But that degree is not always enough. Many college graduates in Tampa are finding themselves working part-time jobs or in the restaurant industry where degrees are not required.
