The corona pandemic and the resulting economic fallout are hurting the chances of many university graduates in Germany to find decent, well-paid jobs.

More than 40 percent of those surveyed believe their career prospects have deteriorated in the past few months, according to a recent survey of students by consulting firm EY. Almost a quarter have reacted to the current crisis by changing their plans. Many plan to extend their study time, change their field of activity, or even decide to give up self-employment.

However, three quarters of the respondents – 79 percent, are still satisfied or even very satisfied with the current situation. Experts report that compared to the previous survey in 2018, there is a noticeable decrease in young professionals confident in their future, graduates of universities in Germany.

Germany says this:

Germany: New rules and restrictive measures in schools after the fall break

Germany: Doctors recommend not to give up on appointments and preventive measures

Merkel is extremely concerned about the situation in Germany: “This cannot go on any longer”

Germany: Number of patients in intensive care units doubled
