Forecast for US grad employment positive

November 27, 2007

The annual Recruiting Trends survey by Michigan State University's Collegiate Employment Research Institute predicts a 7% increase in job opportunities for university graduates, and a 5% rise in starting salaries. Large companies (>3900 employees) will do much of the hiring, in anticipation of retirements. The best markets for grads will apparently be in business, engineering, accounting, and computer science.
