(Neb)-Hot Job Market Awaits College Grads

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Career counselors and recruiters say 2019 college graduates will be hitting a hot job market if they're ready to begin their careers. The National Association of Colleges and Employers reported last month that hiring of college graduates will go up 10.7% from last year.
     University of Nebraska-Lincoln Director of Advising and Career Services Bill Watts says this year's graduates have the best chances to land good jobs that he's seen in 20 years, calling the market "pretty phenomenal."

     Engineer and computer science grads are in high demand, but advisers say liberal arts majors can maximize their chances by exhibiting their ability to think critically, communicate and work with teams as well as getting work experience.
