65% of Employers Plan to Hire Recent College Grads


In the best outlook since 2007, 65 percent of employers are planning on hiring recent grads, according to a recent CareerBuilder survey. That number is up from 57 percent last year, a sure indicator that the Class of 2015 has great career prospects.

That’s not to say they won’t face challenges, though, in entering the career market—and hiring these recent grads means utilizing their fresh education and building upon their blank slate of experience. Top in-demand majors that employers are looking to hire include:

Business and Technical Majors – 38 percent
Computer and Information Sciences – 27 percent
Engineering – 18 percent
Math and Statistics – 14 percent
Health Professions and Related Clinical Sciences – 14 percent
