Employers appear to be holding true to their original hiring projections made for the Class of 2014 as those responding to the Job Outlook 2014 Spring Update survey say they plan to hire 8.6 percent more graduates from the Class of 2014 for their U.S. operations than they did from the Class of 2013.
That’s up a bit from their projections in fall 2013, when employers anticipated a 7.8 percent increase in hiring for their U.S. operations. (See Figure 1.)
Nearly half of respondents to the Job Outlook 2014 Spring Update survey anticipate an increase in their hiring, which is also consistent with the projections reported in fall 2013. (See Figure 2.)
The Job Outlook 2014 Spring Update survey was conducted from February 11 – March 26, 2014; the survey was sent to 1,015 employer members; 161, or 15.9 percent, responded. The report is available to NACE members at www.naceweb.org/job-outlook/index.aspx and through MyNACE.
