The class of 2012 is about to get a gigantic wake-up call: In the last year, college graduates were more likely to be employed as servers, bartenders, and food-service helpers than as engineers, physicists, chemists, and mathematicians combined. Only three of the 30 occupations with the largest projected number of openings by 2020 will require a college degree—teachers, college professors, and accountants. 
Today, new numbers find that half of college grads under 25 are out of work.
