Ok college seniors, there’s good news and there’s bad news.The good news is your peers are finding jobs faster than in years prior. The bad news is the job market still stinks.

A lot of you will be moving home after graduation and having to hit up mum and dad for cash. Many of you will end up in jobs that don’t require four-year degrees.

Staffing firm Adecco called up 500+ of your recently graduated peers and asked them about their job searches.

Here are the good (and bad) results.
