According to the recent report released by the National Association for Colleges and Employers (NACE), Economics majors were the second-largest group to receive at least one job offer before graduating college. Some 68.7% of Computer Science majors had at least one offer, with 61.5% of economics majors and 61.2% of Accounting majors following close behind. The NACE surveyed almost 10,000 college seniors who were set to earn bachelor’s degrees in the spring of 2013; the survey was run from mid-February through the end of March.
