I read an interesting article found here. It talked of the rise of offers for certain graduates. This is of particular interest as I am about to graduate college and one wonders what all that time and energy spent on school work was for. Some of the biggest increases were in Marketing and Engineering. I think this is due in turn to the low unemployment rate that the nation is experiencing. With more and more employers looking for workers, it naturally causes the price paid for the workers to go up. An easy adjustment to the supply and demand curve. The low unemployment is also apparent in that more and more employers are looking at colleges for employees. With such a low unemployment, companies know that they are not going to be able to hire an already experienced employee, and thus turn to these graduates for employees. I am glad for the low unemployment and the benefits that it offers.
