Sigh. Just noticed this from NACE (National Association of Collegiate Employers):

“College Class of 2007: White Males Outpace Women, Minorities in Landing Jobs
White males outpace their female and minority counterparts when it comes to having a full-time job to begin upon graduation, according to a new study conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).

NACE’s 2007 Graduating Student Survey found that although there was no gender- or ethnicity-based differences in the percentage of students actively pursuing full-time positions, gender and ethnicity did play a big role in terms of which graduates have jobs to go to following graduation.”

NACE says the blame lies on women and minorities not using their campus career centers at the same rate as white guys. Given that our business career center has published flyers suggesting that a career in prostitution awaits those who don’t interview on campus, I can’t imagine why women might not feel welcome there.

Oh, and then there was the “are you working on on your career over spring break?” flyer with a bunch of girls in thongs. I’ve also seen the folks at the B-school doing all 4 of the things mentioned in how not to be an annoying white person.

Yeah. That tells me they have useful advice….

    Glad to hear that feminism is flourishing in the U.S. It’s not that much better in Sweden these days…
