    Employers taking part in NACE’s Job Outlook Spring Update survey now say they expect college hiring to remain relatively flat: Currently, they expect to hire 2.1 percent more new college grads from the Class of 2013 than they hired from the Class of 2012.

    That’s down from the 13 percent hiring increase they projected in fall 2012.

    The new projection is consistent with recent job reports that show job growth is less than anticipated.

    The Job Outlook Spring Update also shows:

    • More than four out of five say they are hiring this spring for full-time and/or intern hires.
    • Early projections for fall 2013 recruiting are promising: Approximately 30 percent say they plan to hire more new grads come fall, while about half anticipate maintaining their hiring at current levels.
