Hurst: Graduates In Demand, But Peak Gone

College grads are still in demand, but the peak seems over. "It's a little softer market this spring," says DEANNA HURST, director of business and liberal-arts placement at the University of Iowa. Other college placement officials say the soon-to-be-graduating class of 2001 won't have it as good as last year's class. At Iowa, demand from businesses for retail, consulting and some banking jobs has declined a bit, though tech jobs and finance are still hot. The News Tribune is based in Tacoma, Wash. The same Wall Street Journal article ran April 30 in the POST AND COURIER of Charleston, S.C.
