The four top-hiring industries for Class of 2013 bachelor’s degree graduates remain the same as those in previous reports for this class.
Just like NACE’s September 2013 and April 2013 Salary Survey, the January 2014 Salary Survey—the final report on starting salaries for the college Class of 2013—found that educational services; professional, scientific, and technical services; healthcare and social assistance; and federal, state, and local government are the top-hiring industries for Class of 2013 grads. (See Figure 1.)
Other top-hiring industries for this class are manufacturing, finance and insurance, information, management of companies and enterprises, wholesale trade, and other services (except federal, state, and local government).
Data for the January 2014 Salary Survey report were retrieved in November 2013. An executive summary of the January 2014 Salary Survey report is available at www.naceweb.org/salary-resources/salary-survey.aspx or through the MyNACE area of NACEWeb.
NACE’s first report on starting salaries for the college Class of 2014 will be published in April.
