Out of 161 companies — ranging across various industries and including the likes of Merck, Macy’s, PETCO and Caterpillar — that responded to a survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), almost 70% said they are targeting people with business majors as their new hires. The next three majors with the highest probability of getting a job (if you’re to believe this NACE survey) are Engineering, Accounting and Computer Sciences.
The good news for everyone not in a business, or other highly sought after, major? New college graduate hiring is going to increase by 8.6% this year. So we’re saying there’s a chance!
