The University of South Carolina Beaufort and the Technical College of the Lowcountry are boasting of recent data that show many of their graduates are finding employed.

While the country has been struggling with unemployment rates for some time, this good news is welcome and encouraging. A recent survey of USCB and TCL students who graduated in 2011 showed that approximately 87% had already found employment, 41% of which were jobs related to the grads' degrees. This news makes the schools hopeful for future graduates and their chances in the job market.
