As a graduate of such a (now defunct) program in Charleston SC, I can tell
you that a job glut did exist, but only in immediate area.  The program
ALWAYS had a listing of (desperate) prospective employers from all over the
country, so I guess it depends on your definition of "glut".
Recruiting was weak for this program.  I literally stumbled on it in a last
minute search for a college program near to home to avoid getting a job
immediately upon graduation from high school.  I could not possibly have
found a better field, but it was pure divine intervention.  I would suggest
having a rep at EVERY possible high school "career day" and "college day" to
spread the word. (hel, uh Heck, send me some lit and I'll promote here in
Fort Worth!)
I wish I had known about the field while I was in High school, I would have
taken more science courses!
That's my two cents.  Feel free to contact me if you think I could help.
