Employer hiring plans for fall recruiting for the Class of 2018 look very promising, according to NACE’s Job Outlook 2017 Spring Update.
More than three-quarters of respondents plan to be on campus recruiting for both full-time and intern/co-op positions. Furthermore, less than 2 percent of respondents are either not hiring in the fall of 2017 or in the entire 2017-18 recruiting year. (See Figure 1.)
Data for the Job Outlook 2017 Spring Update survey were collected from February 14, 2017, through March 27, 2017. A total of 160 surveys were returned—a 16.7 percent response rate. The Job Outlook 2017 Spring Update report is available to members through MyNACE.
