Job outlook 2019

The Job Outlook survey is a forecast of hiring intentions of employers as they relate to new college graduates. Each year, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) surveys its employer members about their hiring plans and other employment-related issues in order to project the market for new college graduates for the current class and to assess a variety of conditions that may influence that market. From August 1, 2018, through October 8, 2018, data were collected for the Job Outlook 2019 survey. A total of 172 surveys were returned—an 18.5 percent response rate. Of those responding, 7.6 percent of respondents are from New England, 8.7 percent are from the Plains, 14 percent are from the Mideast, 14.5 percent are from the Southeast, 14.5 percent are from the Rocky Mountain/Far West, 15.1 percent are from the Southwest, and 25.6 percent are from the Great Lakes
