For class of 2018, it's the best job market in a decade

Thank You President Trump. MAGA

"Congratulations, class of 2018 -- you've hit the jackpot, graduating into the strongest job market in a decade, according to CareerBuilder. Around 80 percent of companies surveyed by the jobs site said they plan to hire college grads this year, up from 60 percent in 2008. Another plus for new grads? More than half of employers surveyed cite starting salaries of $40,000 or more.
As for the most sought-after degrees or majors, business topped the rankings with more than a third of companies surveyed looking to hire grads with that major. Around 22 percent of companies are seeking candidates with a degree in engineering.
Technology and business savvy are skills that rank high on companies' wish lists. Of the employers surveyed, 31 percent said they were looking to fill positions in information technology, while a quarter said they needed workers for customer service roles."
