A Wednesday news bit reported graduates in pharmacology, geophysics, astronomy and actuarial science not only had jobs when they were handed their degrees, but also could choose where they went to work. 

The four graduates interviewed were above-average bright. They also were from families able to pay for above-average educations. The geophysicist, for example, did graduate work in Norway after learning that most physicists working in the energy field had advanced degrees.

It also was obvious they or someone they depended on had looked to see what fields offered job opportunities, were not overcrowded and could offer interesting, profitable careers.
