During the recent recessionary slump, employers in the private sector, responding to a national survey conducted by the College Placement Council, continued to report increased employment opportunities for engineering graduates. While business disciplines and the science, math, and other technical categories experienced some fluctuation during this period, overall, employers continued to report increased hiring. What is unique about this early forecast for 1981–82 is that for the first time in the past several years an anticipated increase in hiring was reported for the other nontechnical categories. Five hundred fifty-one employing organizations in the private sector anticipated an increase in hiring for each of the four curricular areas surveyed.
