College Hiring Rebounds 13.5 Percent for Class of 2011

Good news for this year's graduating hiring is expected to grow this academic year. The National Association of Colleges & Employers (NACE) surveyed employers regarding the job outlook for 2011. Of the respondents...

  • 48% of responding employers expect to increase their hiring.

  • 40% expect to maintain their hiring levels, bringing on approximately the same number of 2011 grads as they did from the Class of 2010.

  • 12% anticipate cutting college hiring further.



We're seeing the evidence of this here in ECS on a daily basis. New employers register for ECS recruiting accounts every day; multiple new job postings come in every day also. We've reached capacity for the Oct 7th Engineering Expo and a number of days in October are completely booked with employers who will hold on-campus interview schedules. If your account's not active, you'll miss this activity - and your resume won't be found in the Resume Book searched by registered employers.
