Best Jobs for College Grads

by Mickey Mixon


Employers have said that they are more likely to be 12 percent more college graduates in 2006 than in 2007.


According to recent studies, US Corporations and businesses will employ more graduates with a bachelor’s degree in business, biological and physical sciences. Those with construction management, engineering degrees, health care and accounting will also experience an increase in hiring. Other fields will have a slight decline.


On the average, companies hire 43% of their interns to fulltime and regular status after the internship. The expected increase in the hiring of graduates coincides with an expected growth forecast of the economy in 2006 according to a recent survey by the Federal Reserve Bank.


A lot of companies are coming out of a slump and are now hiring their interns and looking for more. A lot of companies are posting jobs and coming to college campuses to recruit.


Most experts advise that during the Christmas holidays, whether you’re looking for permanent employment or internship, it is time to step up your search.


Take advantage of the holiday events you’re going to, discuss what you’re looking for and your goals. Businesses don’t want to be flooded with calls and faxes of resumes. They will probably rely on word-of-mouth to get a handful of candidates The holidays are a perfect time to network.


What to expect:


Businesses expect to employ about the same volume of MBAs this year as last year. Businesses have found employees with bachelor’s degrees are able to do some of the work being done by MBAs.


Companies are more likely to employ students who have undergone internships. The work experience, they say, makes a lot of difference. Federal agencies will employ more graduates but there is an expected decrease in hiring by the state and local government agencies.


On average, starting salaries will increase by 1 to 2 percent.
