Job hopes on the rise for college graduates
More openings foreseen, especially in engineering and communications
As the economy continues to slowly improve, seniors and graduate students may have more reasons to be optimistic about job prospects this year. The National Association of Colleges and Employers recently surveyed 900 of its members and found that employers expect to hire 10 percent more entry level workers this spring. A survey of 4,000 employers by the Michigan State University showed similar results, with companies expecting to increase hiring by 7 percent this year.
