Jobs For The Class Of 2007
The National Association of Colleges and Employers conducted the survey and found that there are more jobs for the class of 2007.
Workers at the MU career center are still doing their part to find MU seniors a job.
"We provide all sorts of resources and help in terms of interview preparation, resume reviews, job search kind of strategies, any other kind of resources that's going to help them," said Amanda Nell of the MU Career Center.
The preparation helped one student, who hasn't even graduated, secure a job.
"Wasn't what I had originally intended to do; it was something that just sort of gained some momentum, but it was being able to take that step and just talk to somebody about careers in general," said Eric Smithermen, graduating student.
Unlike in previous years, the 2006-2007 graduating class will enter a job market where employers plan on hiring more of them. Employers plan to hire nine percent more grads in government and non-profit jobs, 18.4 percent more in the service industry and over 24 percent more in manufacturing, 19 percent more jobs overall.
One student who already secured a job says college students still need to be proactive.
"If you're a little more shy and you don't go out and actually actively search for a job then it'll be a lot more difficult," said graduating senior Winston Tracy.
