Legislators look at post-collegiate job market

EDISON - Two bills aimed at addressing college graduates entering the job market passed out of State House committees today.

State Sen. Shirley Turner?s (D-District 15) bill would require schools to track graduates to see if they?re working and then provide information on their websites as to what industries are hiring.

The other bill would absolve students of up to three-quarters of their loans if they agree to work in certain industries.

The bills must still pass the full Legislature and be signed by the governor.
