Quick and Quintessential Career & Job Tips
Job-hunting tips from the March 1, 2004 issue of QuintZine.
CollegeGrad.com has announced the Top 500 Entry Level Employers for 2004. The list represents more than 120,000 jobs for the graduating class of 2004, with a substantial 12.9 percent increase in hiring compared to 2003.
“Entry-level hiring is taking a very positive turn in 2004,” said Brian Krueger, president of CollegeGrad.com. “We are seeing a large increase in the number of entry-level jobs available in nearly every discipline. While the market is still very competitive, the jobs are there to be found for those who take the time to do the research.” Employers listed in the survey results, which are posted here, are hiring as many as 6,500 new grads and as few as 10. But large or small, respondents have expressed their commitment to hiring entry-level college grads.
For the first time in four years, the tide has truly turned as employers are again singing the praises of entry-level college grad hires. “College recruiting is a priority for us,” said Jyoti Cox, director of recruitment at GEICO. “Given the current economy, we are fortunate to be in a position to hire a large number of college graduates into various career paths.”
