Things are looking up in the job market for college grads as employers plan to hire 7.8 percent more new college graduates for their U.S. operations in 2013-14 than they did in 2012-13.

According to results of a new survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE,) the “Job Outlook 2014” survey revealed that, overall, employers anticipate hiring 12 percent more new college graduates in 2013-14 than they did in 2012-13. This includes the hires they anticipate for all of their U.S. and international locations.

NACE will release their complete Job Outlook 2014 report this fall.

NACE collected data for their survey from NACE’s college recruiting professional members from August 5 through September 13, 2013. A total of 208 surveys were returned for a response rate of 19.8 percent.

By sector, 43.8 percent of responding organizations were from manufacturing, 37 percent from service, 8.7 percent from retail and wholesale trade, 8.2 percent from transportation and utilities, and 2.4 percent from government organizations.
