Outplacement services firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas says entry-level job seekers with four-year degrees are in demand, though recent college graduates will have to compete with those who graduated during the last few years and waited out the downturn. Additionally, hiring gains will be more modest this year, with the National Association of Colleges and Employers reporting that employers expect a 10% gain in hiring of spring graduates, versus 21% last year. Those with degrees in accounting and finance, engineering, computer science, sales and marketing, education, and social services have better job prospects and could earn higher salaries than graduates in other fields.
