Employers want to hire graduates who majored in these fields:
1. Engineering (72 percent)
2. Business (68.2 percent)
3. Computer Science (57.8 percent)
4. Accounting (50.6 percent)
5. Miscellaneous Majors (31.2 percent)
Employers aren't as enthusiastic about graduates who majored in these disciplines:
1. Health Science (3.2 percent)
2. Education (5.2 percent)
3. Agriculture (8.4 percent)
4. Social Science (10.4 percent)
5. Humanities (11 percent)
For its Job Outlook 2015 Spring Update, NACE received survey responses from 162 companies. According to the poll's results, employers are most eager to hire from one particular major: engineering.
Indeed, 72 percent of the businesses surveyed responded that grads who studied engineering were on their employee wish list, even though most of the companies aren't engineering firms, reported
Forbes. Who's not in demand? Health sciences and education majors. Only 3.2 percent and 5.2 percent of employers, respectively, want those grads on their payroll.
The employers represent a wide variety of fields-businesses such as American Express, Exxon Mobil, Merck, Procter & Gamble, and United Airlines. Although such diverse demand for engineers may seem unusual, according to a 2014 Pew Research Center survey, only about one-third of people who major in engineering actually end up working as engineers.
