Employers expect to hire 21 percent more new college grads this year than
they did last year, according to preliminary results of NACE’s Job Outlook
Spring Update
survey. 

Back in August, employers
projected a 13.5 percent increase
 in college hiring for the 2010-11 academic
year. However, since that time, other NACE surveys have pointed to college
hiring gaining momentum. For example, NACE’s hiring index, conducted monthly
October through February, showed an increase in the percent of employers
planning to hire more new college graduates. In addition, NACE’s monthly
recruiting activity index pointed to increased activity on campus: In fact, the index hit an
all-time high in February
, foreshadowing a greater increase in hiring for
the college Class of 2011 than originally anticipated.

welcoming. To top it all off the scenery is out of this world–the camp is
situated on Long Lake with a sprawling view of mountain vistas right at your
doorstep. Teaching at this camp has completely changed my life, so I wanted to
