CACEE releases annual campus recruitment survey

September 17, 2009

According to the Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers' annual campus recruitment and benchmark survey, the most active sector for graduate recruiting in 2008-09 was professional services, with job offers from firms in this sector constituting nearly 47% of all job offers reported by survey respondents. Graduate hiring appears to be concentrated in Ontario and Alberta, which accounted for 78% of all hires. The overall acceptance rate for jobs offered to new graduates was 83.3%, and 77% of reporting firms filled their available positions. Competition over a candidate was the most-cited reason for why a job offer was rejected. To obtain a copy of the survey, contact Anne Markey at annem [at]
