Better Job Market for Recent College Grads

According to a recent article by USA Today, 2011 college graduates are entering a better job market than 2010’s graduates. Additionally, employers have an increase in open positions and plan to hire 19.3% more recent graduates than last year.

 

Because of the recession and the need for employers to “tighten up their belts” in 2010, employers had 40.5 applicants per job but didn’t have enough jobs to fill for all the applicants. However, with the recent hiring increase, employers have only half as many applicants per job as last year.

 

This job market increase is important for current college students as well. College students who chose to complete college credit through standardized exams can help them complete their degree faster, allowing them to get a head start on their careers. Credit by exam is accepted at over 3,800 colleges and helps adult learners complete college credit while saving money.
