Trend: Fewer Students Will Have Jobs at Time of Graduation

Preliminary results from NACE's 2009 Student Survey show that approximately 60 percent of graduating seniors (bachelor's degree level) have applied for jobs, but just 19 percent have actually secured one. In comparison, last year at this time, 25 percent of those who had applied had a job in hand.

The survey doesn't conclude until the end of April, but, with 11,000 graduating senior responses in hand, early results point to fewer students with jobs at the time of graduation than we've seen for the past few years.

Additional information about the preliminary results appears in the April 1 issue of NACE's Spotlight Online newsletter.
