There's an uptick in entry-level positions requiring finance, computer science, accounting, business administration, and engineering degrees. The career services director at Missouri Southern says even if more jobs are available, it's still a competitive job market.
"The biggest thing for students is to make sure they're attending career fairs, they're attending work shops, to have resumes. They should always submit a cover letter with a resume," states Nicole Brown, Director of Career Services at MSSU.
Brown says networking, internships and part-time jobs are especially vital for students pursuing careers in more competitive fields.
