Many Job Opportunities For Recent Grads

Recent Grads May Get Lucky in the Real World

You know that old saying, when one door closes another one opens? Well it applies perfectly to some recent uplifting job news. Doors across the country have been closing on the working-lives of parents and grandparents who have decided to retire, leaving wide open doors in the job market for recent grads. Although labor news over the past couple months has been focused on job loss and rising unemployment, it seems there's some good news in the midst of all the rubble.

Despite the state of the economy, most companies are continuing their plans for college-recruiting and their hiring numbers should be about the same as last year. That doesn't mean you should get overly confident and dilly-dally with your job search, because if the economy worsens companies will likely tame their recruitment of new hires. Colleges will be blaring "Pomp and Circumstance" in just a few months — are you almost-grads feeling the real world jitters yet?

I hope this is good news for me, too. I'm actually a bit nervous about getting a new position in the job market in my area.

Think about this: with all the boomers retiring in the next few years, there will be a multitude of job opportunities available for younger folks.

It is starting to creep me out a little bit, having to get a job and be totally responsible for a company and all of the like. But I am going back to school for 2 more years, so I get to hold off at least a bit more. However, with my first B.A. I am hoping to get some sort of a "real-job" while I work my way through my second B.S.
