Graduates Looking For Work After College

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

The degrees were handed out to students Saturday morning at the Mobile Civic Center for University of Mobile graduates. It's an exciting day for both students and parents, but what happens now and where do these graduates go from here?
 
"I'm going to teach elementary I don't know where yet. I kind of want to go over seas and teach," said Jenni Garvey.

Garvey received her degree in elementary education. While she doesn't have a job lined up right now, she's optimistic that her dream job isn't far away.
  
"I'm student teaching in the fall so I've got to do that and then I've already interviewed with the international school system and just praying that works," she says.

U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions was the keynote speaker. He says he has a plan when it comes to job creation. Not everyone has a job lined up after college.
  
"We have to be sure that the number of foreign workers that come into the country are not so large that it does make it difficult for our college graduates and our working Americans to be able to work. That's something we're talking about right now. We need to get it right," said Sessions.
 
"I want to teach elementary grades, probably fourth grade. My dad's a teacher so that's really influential in that also teachers have probably been the most influential people in my life and I really want to do that for younger kids and just help them learn and grow," said a graduate.
