Remember that little problem we have with the economy? Well if you’re in the Berkeley class of 2010-11 we have good news.

You actually have be an adult now, and like, be a real person… Not to rub it in or anything.

But that’s not what we wanted to say.

The good news has to do with the promising results of the Employment Recruitment trends survey sent out by UC Berkeley’s Career Center.

Responses reveal that 85 percent of employers plan to hire at the same rate as last year, or perhaps even better. Almost half the employers will recruit for full-time jobs at a rate of 15-30 percent greater than for the last graduating class. And 85 percent of employers say they are doing this internship conversion deal which is exactly what it sounds like: you get hired for an internship and they may just convert it into a job.

Career Center really does have cool opportunities and a broad range of fields, from the arts to engineering, and even international options. So now you don’t have to feel so bad about that whole growing up thing.
