New grads with business or technology degrees will have a decided advantage when they hit the job market this summer, new research shows. LiveScience reports that a study by CareerBuilder revealed that degrees related to business and technology are the most in demand by employers and account for more than half of the 10 most-sought-after college majors. Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder, said more than half of employers are planning to hire new graduates this year. “College students who are graduating in business, technology and health-related majors will have an advantage in terms of the volume of opportunities available today,” Ferguson said. “However, other majors such as liberal arts and sciences are also attractive to employers as they look for individuals with strong communications and critical-thinking skills.”
