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.
