The serious economic and labour market consequences of Covid-19 are apparent around the world, even if the manifest themselves differently in different countries. As the graduate labor market mirrors the issues in the larger economy, graduate recruitment is declining globally.

But are there any countries that are doing better than others? What type of government - federal or authoritarian - has the advantage of containing the impact of Covid-19 on the economy and creating job opportunities for the young graduates? What sectors of the economy look most promising across countries and government types in terms of employment for young graduates? Are there strategies for "weathering the storm" of graduation to a (post)-Covid economy? If so, are there any differences between the countries with varying types of government?

These questions are proposed for examination by a group of graduate students, 1) in an orientation webinar, 2) through individual research, and 3) they will be discussed at the AI conference "Post-Covid Economy and Graduate Recruiting" and published in Nov 2021.
