    When do you think the recession will end? For people entering unis in 2009, will the current recession trend be a problem for getting jobs after graduation in 2012/2013?

    I think it'll take a while, especially for graduates to find a job.

    We have all these unemployed, but experienced people, so once jobs open up the experienced people will probably be chosen over the graduates to be honest.. I think it'll be like this for a few years.

    I think the recession may officially end earlier than some might think. But growth will be so tepid that you'll hardly notice anyway. And it'll be that way for years.

    There was some crazy prediction that the recession would be over by around Christmas but unemployment will remain high until at least next summer.

    How can you expect serious responses with such a ridiculous question? Do you really anticipate that someone on TSR can give you the exact date to when the recession will be over?

    Sorry, tad harsh, but hey Google is your friend as well.

    Don't know when it will officially end but it's going to be a hard job market for ages to come, maybe years.
