Hundreds of thousands of young adults will be graduating from college in just a few months. With the job market going down the tubes, where are they going to work, what are they going to do? Some will go to graduate school, but more and more grads are looking to be cast on a reality show.

Recent college grads are inundating online reality casting communities like realtywanted.com, craigslist.org and other casting networks seeking a chance to be on a reality show, hoping to jumpstart their career. They may be craving their 15 minutes of fame, but most are hoping that 15 minutes somehow creates a career.

Recent grad Darrell Riggins told CNN he sees more opportunities within the world of reality television than in the actual job market.

"If the economy was how it was a few years back, I'd be finding a full time job, but I have a degree in business finance, and finance sucks right now," the 22-year-old said.

"I think reality TV could really help me start a career, or at least help me figure out what to do with my life ... I could be noticed by someone watching who wants to hire me, maybe someone at a television network needs a financial analyst -- you never know what could happen! There are so many opportunities when you're on TV. I really hope I make it!"

Young adults have given up on cramming for the GRE, LSAT or MCAT and are heading to the local photographer to get head shots in hopes of getting into the "new" grad school.
