Grads with degrees in finance, accounting, engineering, and especially technology, will likely have the edge in landing a job.
(NBC) - The job market hasn't been kind to college graduates in recent years; only about half found work in their field of study. But that's changing this year, if a nationwide survey of Human Resource executives holds up.
John Challenger's global outsourcing firm; Challenger, Gray, and Christmas, did the survey and found employers can't put off hiring anymore.
Economists like Mark Vitner at Wells Fargo say grads with degrees in finance, accounting, engineering, and especially technology, will likely have the edge in landing a job.
As far as what a new grad can expect to earn, another survey found most companies plan to offer the same starting pay as last year, mostly between 30 and 50 thousand dollars a year.
