What Are Employers Looking For?

What are employers looking for in new college graduates?  A recent study may surprise you.  It's not all about the major.  Other factors play an important role in hiring decisions.

Each state is broken down into several Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs). The MSAs are the most specific wage data you can locate using the BLS website. If you determine your MSA, you can then search the BLS wage data information to find out average salary information specific to your aera.
