Great Job Market for Graduates

From the Chronicle of Higher Education - Students graduating from college this spring face an exceptionally good job market, with almost 60 percent of employers saying they plan to hire more new graduates in 2006-7 than they did in 2005-6, according to survey results released in summary form this week by the National Association of Colleges and Employers. That translates into the hiring of nearly 20 percent more new graduates this year than last. The demand for employees has driven up starting salaries in a number of fields, according to another survey conducted by the association. The most-sought-after new workers have degrees in business, engineering, and computer-related fields, the association said. —Andrew Mytelka
