Seniors graduating from college this year will get diplomas, but they may not get jobs. Employers expect to hire 22% fewer new graduates from the college class of 2009 than they hired from the class of 2008, according to a new study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers. The latest numbers also differ significantly from the fall, when employers' hiring projections looked flat. The expected decline in new-grad hires was prompted by the deteriorating economic situation, says the association. Employers also seem cautious about the near future.
