According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers JobOutlook report, employers plan to hire 5.3 percent more new college graduates in 2009-10 than they did in 2008-2009. That's a bit of good news, but not too much, as employers dropped their hiring in 2008-09 by 22 percent over 2007-08. Many industries are reporting increases in hiring, with the exception of engineering services, government, and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
The JobOutlook report also shows an strong increase in hiring in the Northeast U.S., and a decrease in hiring in the Southeast.
