Good news for the Class of 2012!

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), employers expect to hire 10.2 percent more new college graduates from the college Class of 2012 than they did from the Class of 2011. This data comes from NACE's Job Outlook 2012 Spring Update.  

That's up from the 9.5 percent hiring increase employers projected for the Class of 2012 when polled in September. This is the second consecutive year in which employers have adjusted their hiring expectations upward.
