A New Blue Sky on the Job Horizon
See those patches of blue sky on the job horizon? If you’ve been looking in that direction for a while, you’ll know they weren’t there last year. But it appears some of the gray is fading away. And the bright blue patches are here to stay. In fact, rumor has it that they’ll only be getting bigger in the near future. As least, that’s the picture painted by research firm Millennial Branding. The renowned organization did some digging, testing, and uncovering. And they came up with a startlingly positive discovery: A robust 87% of 225 surveyed employers claim that they will hire more new college graduates this year than last. Many of these companies have boosted hiring in the last half year alone.
If you’re a recent or upcoming college graduate, this indeed is reason to rejoice — especially in light of the hiring doldrums that ruled the last few years. But don’t plan your trip to Easy Street just yet. It’s true the job outlook is rosier than it’s been in what seems like an eternity. Nevertheless, the situation has a ways to go before hitting pre-recession levels. Still, good news is good news. And college students of every ilk should see this new reality as an open doorway to post-college success.
A recent ABC News article highlights this encouraging development with engaging vigor. While exploring this welcome phenomenon, it puts the new reality into a crystal clear perspective for young people taking the first steps on the road to their future. I highly recommend taking a look at this eye-opening exploration. Then tell me how it makes you feel – good, bad, indifferent? Inspire any suggestions? Remember, the comment box is always open.
