The current bar chart tells us that the higher one’s degree is, the easier to get a job.

However, those who hold professional degree, which although lower than a doctorate, have lowest unemployment rate. But the professional degree holders’ unemployment rate is even higher than doctorate holders.

One of the contributing factors could be that universities recruit more degree students than before, which makes the job hunting more competitive. Thus, those with higher level degrees are easily to attain better or securer positions.

Another potential reason would be that higher degree holders might have more research experiences, or they know better how to think and study. All these skills could help them fit into their jobs and achieve better results.

Otherwise, useful data/research results like current bar chart might not be helpful in informing commoners/ helping common people raise their awareness.

However ， the lower degree holders’ employment should be protected. For example, offering them more positions, offering them more chances of life-long education/further education or part-time learning.
