Hiring Grads in California

More good news for college graduates: A survey shows 60 percent of them plan to hire people right out of school. Recruiters still see an exceptionally high demand for young accountants:

"Colleges are now building up their accounting programs so there are more graduates coming out of school, but demand still exceeds supply. Employers are
specifically interested in any specialized training in audit and financial analysis."

Graduates in those fields can expect starting annual salaries of $45,000 to $55,000, Kanter said, and that jumps to $60,000 if they have strong communication skills and practical experience through internships or volunteer positions.

There's a lot in this article from the Orange County Register you've seen before, but there might be some particularly interesting details to glean for the Californians among you.
