College Hiring Up!

By Barbara Hewitt

Great news! The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) reported yesterday that employers expect to hire 21% more new college graduates this year over last year. (This is up from the 13.5% increase they predicted back in August.) The Career Services office at Penn has also noted an increase in employer activity this year, with both career fair attendance and on-campus recruiting up significantly.

If you would like to read the preliminary report, check out JobWeb,  a website maintained by NACE which offers career and job-search advice for new college graduates.  You’ll find lots of great articles and useful information on this site.
