GMAT Essay Topic 426 - The following appeared as part of an article in the education section of a Waymarsh City newspaper. "Throughout the last two decades, those who earned graduate degrees found it very difficult to get jobs teaching their academic specialties at the college level. Those with graduate degrees from Waymarsh University had an especially hard time finding such jobs. But better times are coming in the next decade for all academic job seekers, including those from Waymarsh. Demographic trends indicate that an increasing number of people will be reaching college age over the next ten years; consequently, we can expect that the job market will improve dramatically for people seeking college -level teaching positions in their fields." Discuss how well reasoned . . . Etc.

In this argument, the arguer claims that more college-level teaching positions will be needed in the future job market. To

In this argument, the arguer claims that more college-level teaching positions will be needed in the future job market. To substantiate the conclusion, the arguer provides the fact that it was very difficult for those with graduate degrees to get teaching jobs. In addition, the arguer points out that the number of people reaching college age in the next decade is increasing. The evidence throughout this argument is insufficient and therefore does not lend strong support to the conclusion.

In the first place, the assumption on which the conclusion is unwarranted. The arguer assumes that is was the low number of people reaching college age that resulted in the difficulty in finding teaching jobs in the past two decades. Nevertheless, it is equally possible that the difficulty was caused by other factors such as the higher standard of employment. As a consequence, the arguer should explain all the relevant factors that account for graduates’ difficulty in seeking jobs.

In the second place, it is supposed that an increase in the number of college-aged over the next decade will result in an increase in the number of people attending college during this period. However, it is not necessarily the case. The argument fails to rule out the possibility, for example, that less people will be eager to earn graduate degrees in the future and they will look for dubs after graduation from their universities.

Last but not least, the assumption that the increasing number of college-goers will ensure academic fobs for all academic job seekers is problematic. In some colleges, for instance, there are enough teachers dealing with more and more students and hence no one will be employed in the future.

In conclusion, the arguer fails to demonstrate that the college-teaching job market will improve dramatically. To solidify this argument, the arguer would have to provide more concrete statistics about teaching job market throughout the last two decades. Furthermore, the arguer should establish a casual relationship between an increase in the number of people reaching college age and the increase in the number of college-level teaching positions.
