MHC Career Center Provides Graduating Seniors Access to Top Career Experts
Career Webinar Series features 9 Experts who share best practices and proven strategies to help graduates get jobs.
The graduating college class of 2010, like the previous two graduating classes are facing a bleak job market. According to a 2009 survey from the National Association of Colleges and Employers only 19.7 percent of the 2009 graduates who applied for a job had one by the time they graduated. That’s in contrast to 51% in 2008!
The National Association of College and Employer Association’s spring 2010 survey reported employers planned to hire 5.3 percent more new college graduates than they did the previous year. And based on the economy and conditions today, the Class of 2011 will also have to work harder and smarter to not only get the job they want, but a job, period!
