Job forecast favorable for this year’s college grads

May 16, 2018

Job prospects for the Class of 2018 have improved because a low unemployment rate means fewer people are applying for available openings, said Carl Van Horn, the director of the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University.

“Even though there are jobs aplenty compared to previous years, that doesn’t mean the salaries of those jobs have gone up enormously — although we are seeing signs of positive wage gains in some sectors,” he said. “And we’re even finding, for the first time in several years, some employers are beginning to pay hiring bonuses.”
