Job market better for this year's college graduates
The hiring outlook is better for new college graduates.
Employers expect to hire 10.2 percent more new college graduates from the college class of 2012 than they did from the class of 2011, according to a new National Association of Colleges and Employers study
That’s up from the 9.5 percent hiring increase they projected for the class of 2012 when polled in September.
“Although employers haven’t revised their earlier projections significantly, this upward movement along with other positive economic indicators show that the job market for new college graduates is improving steadily,” said Marilyn Mackes, NACE executive director.
This marks the second straight year that employers adjusted their hiring expectations between the fall and Spring surveys, NACE said.
