COLLEGE GRAD HIRING TO RISE BY 9%
EXPANSION CONTINUES FOR NINTH YEAR: MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY
“The college labor market improved for the ninth consecutive year as another strong year for new graduates seeking jobs is projected, according to Michigan State University’s Recruiting Trends annual survey of employers in the US.
Employers surveyed expressed the highest level of optimism in the labor market since the late 1990s. In total, they plan to hire nearly 63,500 new graduates this academic year.
The last few years, college grad hiring has been up 15% to 20% consecutively, creating more jobs than candidates available. In 2018-19, hiring is expected to increase by a manageable 9%.”
