President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney offered their jobs agenda at the start of the second presidential debate, responding to a college student concerned about finding employment after graduation.
Mr Romney told the student his question was one that's being asked by college students across the nation. He said his administration would try to make it easier for students to afford college and promote economic growth to help students.
Mr Romney said the nation faces more debt and fewer jobs. He said: "I'm going to change that."
Mr Obama said he would build upon the five million private sector jobs created during his first term, pushing for more manufacturing jobs.
The president said his policies aimed to improve the education system and promote a variety of energy sources.
