For those of you seeking a J-O-B, here are degrees that employers are checking for the most:
Employers say that they plan to hire almost 20 percent more four-year college graduates than they did last year, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).
Already, 41 percent of the current class who applied for a job has received at least one offer, compared with 38 percent of the Class of 2010 at this time last year.
Hiring by industry has increased in almost every sector, except for government, professional services and retail. Engineering, computer-related and “money” degrees like accounting perennially comprise the most job openings, and this year is no different. However, liberal arts and science majors also are seeing slightly better opportunities this year, according to the NACE.
