Nearly six out of 10 college graduates have found employment this past year, according to a recent survey by the education ministry.
In a set of polls surveying 559-thousand students at over 500 higher education institutions who graduated in August last year and February this year, an average of 58-point-6 percent have landed jobs, 3-point-6 percentage points higher than the previous year.
While graduates of technical and vocational colleges had a higher chance of securing a job compared to their university graduate counterparts, Seoul National University of Science and Technology ranked first among institutions of more than 3-thousand students with a 73-and-a-half percent of employment.
