Is it good to be a millennial, or is it bad to be a millennial? That’s the question. Well, if you’re going by the latest study, it looks like it’s a good thing, at least for the Class of 2016.
That’s because a survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers determined employers plan to hire 11% more college grads this year than last year.
So, the generation known for moving back in with their parents might be able to escape all those awkward run-ins at the house.
The only problem is, this survey contradicts a Bank of America survey conducted earlier this month that found 41% of millennials are chronically stressed about money. But maybe hopping into the best job market millennials have ever seen is the remedy to relieve all that financial stress.
Wages for new college grads are on the rise with average starting salaries reaching over $50,000 for 2015 grads. That’s an increase of over 5% from 2014.
So, is working dead end jobs out of college going to be a thing of the past? Apparently so, if you believe the latest survey.
Millennials can finally look forward to finding their dream job, at least until the next study comes out that says nobody’s hiring millennials.
