Emma Watson -- Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Here's Emma Watson pissing off tons of recent college grads -- and their parents -- by bucking the trend and getting a job days after getting a diploma.

Emma was smiling as she reported to work on the Toronto set of "Regression" ... a movie she's shooting with Ethan Hawke.

Watson, who graduated from Brown University last weekend, is clearly the most likely to succeed.

NOT-SO-FUN FACT: About 50% of college grads under age 25 are unemployed -- and most of those who do find work ... are doing jobs that don't require degrees anyway.
