From May to September 2006, Experience asked graduating students (2006) to share their success in getting a full-time job. Based on member feedback, we are pleased to share this hiring information so you can benefit from the experience of other members in the Experience community.
High-level results found that the majors most in demand were engineering, computer science/MIS, business (accounting, finance and marketing) and education.
Consistent with the majors sought, the industries that hired the most new graduates were technology, finance and education. Job functions filled by these majors were in engineering, finance, accounting and teaching.
As far as finding jobs, new grads felt their university career center was the most effective resource, followed by direct application to the company and networking.
