AMHERST, Mass. (WWLP) – Massachusetts ranks as the top state for college graduates to land jobs.
Georgetown University found Massachusetts has the most number of job postings for college grads than any other state in the country. 63% of all online postings target new grads. Most of those job postings are for careers in science, engineering, and mathematics.
UMass Amherst students who are studying science have mixed reviews about applying for jobs once they graduate.
Freshman Mezhgan Rustemi said, “Definitely the competition, it kinds of scares me, but if you put your mind to it, I guess you could do it because there are a lot of jobs in the medical field.”
“That makes me feel more confident actually, so maybe I’ll stick with bio and not transfer into business, but I don’t know,” said freshman Lawrence Laurent.
The study found college grads also have luck finding jobs in Delaware and New York.
