Data Shows Promising Employment Chances for Upcoming Grads

HUNTER COLLEGE–After two tough years, graduating seniors finally have something to look forward to: rising employment rates.

Employers plan to hire 27% more new graduates this year than they did the year prior, estimates the National Association of Colleges and Employers Job Outlook. There will be approximately a 30% increase in hiring over the next six months. 

As the unemployment rate lowers and the hiring increases, this year’s graduates are projected to have a more promising and easier experience in job finding after graduation, said Shayne Bernstein, associate director of Hunter’s Career Development Services.
