The Endicott Report. Trends in Employment of College and University Graduates in Business and Industry 1975. Twenty-Ninth Annual Report. A Survey of 160 Well-Known Business and Industrial Concerns.
Endicott, Frank S.
A total of 160 companies supplied information for the 29th annual report regarding the employment of college graduates in business. Most are large or medium-size corporations that regularly recruit college men and women. A total of 31 percent of these companies plan to contact fewer colleges in 1975, but 29 percent will contact more schools. The companies expect to hire almost exactly the number of men with bachelor's degrees they hired from 1974 classes. No decrease is indicated. Also, they expect to hire 7 percent more women graduates. In greatest demand are men in engineering, accounting, business administration, and sales, and women in accounting, general business, data processing, and engineering. Almost all of these companies will raise starting salaries. Predicted averages for 1975 indicate that bachelor's degree graduates in engineering will be offered about $1,062 per month, accountants about $990, graduates in business administration about $814, and liberal arts graduates about $776 per month. Almost all of the companies that reported starting salaries for both men and women indicated they were the same. Although there has been a somewhat restricted job market for college graduates in recent years, the responding companies report that from 23-33 percent of the men employed three years ago have left.
