Recruiting Trends 1990-91: A Study of 549 Businesses, Industries, Government Agencies, and Educational Institutions Employing New College Graduates. 20th Anniversary Abridged Edition.
Scheetz, L. Patrick
This report, which contains and expands on a summary version published earlier in the same year, provides the responses to questionnaires designed to determine the expectations of employers hiring new college graduates for the 1990-91 college labor market. A total of 5,556 employers were invited to participate. They represented: (1) members of the College Placement Council or a regional placement association; (2) employers registered with Career Development and Placement Services at Michigan State University; (3) employers randomly selected from a list of small businesses in the Standard and Poor's Register; and (4) elementary and secondary school districts listed in the national CIC School Address Directories. Usable responses (N=549) to mailed questionnaires covered: the anticipated changes in hiring trends for new college graduates; expected starting salaries; campus recruiting activities; and other topics of interest to personnel administrators, placement officers, career counselors, faculty, and students. Responses to open-ended questions are also provided on topics such as: grade point averages as indicators of future job performance; the attitudes of new college graduates toward work; job titles of positions available to liberal arts graduates; job categories experiencing the most growth in employment; and the factors influencing the general job market for new college graduates in 1990-91.
