The National Association of Colleges and Employers recently published a document titled, The Job Outlook for the Class of 2014. It is full of promising statistics and information. A few key pieces of information:
1. Hiring of New Grads is Expected to Rise. The job market has improved for new grads, and hiring is expected to increase by 7.8%
2. Certain Majors are In Demand. Employers are especially interested in bachelor’s degree grads in the business, engineering, computer/information science, sciences, and communications disciplines.
3. Starting Salaries are Sweeter. Benefits, too - and this is an important element to your total employment package. Benefits can mean big money in perks and savings.
