(CNN) – The latest unemployment report reveals good news for younger Americans, hit hard by the recession.

Jobs for 25-to-34-year-olds are on the rise.

The Labor Department reports, the unemployment rate for that group fell from nine percent to 8.7 percent.

The overall jobless rate was 8.3 percent in February.

Young workers graduating from college had few job prospects at the worst of the recession.  Many opted for grad school instead.
