NJIT hosts Spring Career Fair: Employers expected to increase hiring...

Despite what you have read about layoffs and downsizing, the job market for computer engineers has done a complete turn-around.

"The job market is especially strong for computer engineers, said Greg Mass, executive director of career services at NJIT. "The fastest growth rate of employment opportunity during the last nine months has been in computer engineering. Students graduating with that major have promising job outlooks."

To register for the career fair, please go to www.njit.edu/CDS, or call (973) 596-3646. Reporters interested in attending this career fair, please contact Robert Florida 973-596-5203 for directions and parking.

Employers are expected to increase hiring in 2005, said Mass. He expects NJIT's annual spring career fair, scheduled for March 9, to be rife with employers hungry for resumes. The fair, held in NJIT's Estelle and Zoom Fleisher Athletic Center, brings together private and government agencies looking for students who will graduate in May or August of 2005.

The fair commonly attracts over 100 companies and more than 1,000 students and alumni from NJIT and other colleges. Employers come to interview students majoring in engineering, computer science, architecture, management, applied science and liberal arts.

Of the companies coming to recruit graduates, more than half will seek computing engineer or computer science majors, Mass said. Other sought after majors are accounting, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, business administration and economics and finance, according to a survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).

After 9/11, job growth in computer engineering slowed, especially in the Northeast, Mass added. As a result, fewer high school students enrolled in computer engineering majors. And though the job market for computer engineering majors has improved, college enrollment in the field is still down.
