2019 College Grad Outlook: Hot Job Market for Grads, But Will Wages Satisfy?
For the more than 3,000,000 students estimated to graduate with a degree this year, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, many will find themselves with offers to work right out of college.
Employers plan to hire nearly 17% more college graduates from the Class of 2019 than they did the previous graduating class, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers’ (NACE) Job Outlook 2019 report. That is the highest rate since 2007, when employers planned to hire 17.4% more college graduates. The survey also found only 4% of companies plan to decrease hiring, down from the nearly 10% who reported fewer hires from the Class of 2018.
