The Class of 2015 in US – Employers expect to hire 8.3 percent more new college graduates

Employers expect to hire 8.3 percent more new college graduates from the Class of 2015 for their U.S. operations than they did from the Class of 2014, according to a new report from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).

Employers taking part in NACE’s Job Outlook 2015 survey cited company growth and attrition caused by retirements as main drivers behind the increased hiring.

Current results are consistent with those posted over the past few years; as the economy has improved, many organizations have increased the number of new college graduates they bring on board. (See Figure 1.)

Responding employers expressed the most interest in new college graduates at the bachelor’s degree level in the business, engineering, and computer/information sciences field. Among individual majors, finance, accounting, and computer science graduates are most sought-after by survey respondents. (Editor’s note: In general, demand for specific types of graduates is driven by the nature of responding employers. Not all industries are represented.)
