WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - It looks like this is a great year to be a grad!
A new survey from the National Association of College and Employers says college graduates this spring could have an easier time finding a job.
Employers responding to the survey said they expect to hire 8.6 percent more graduates from the class of 2014.
They say these results show more consumer optimism in the job market.
Almost half of the respondents, 48.4 percent, say they are increasing their college hiring. Less than 30 percent said they plan to cut back.
