Companies plan to hire 13 percent more graduates from the class of 2013 than in 2012, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
“While employers are seeking graduates from a broad range of disciplines, this fall they expressed particular interest in hiring new graduates with business, computer science and engineering-related degrees, and are looking to college campuses to supply their hiring needs,” Marilyn Mackes, NACE executive director, said in the report.
Other fields of the top 10 degrees companies look for in a new hire include business management, mechanical engineering, marketing and economics.
In the month of August, unemployment rates for individuals ages 25 and older show that college graduates are over two times more likely to find a job than high school graduates.
