Job picture bleak for college grads...

Even as new numbers show the overall employment picture improving—or at least not getting worse—new college graduates may not be so lucky when it comes to finding work.

A survey released last week from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) reported that businesses plan to hire only 2.1 percent more college graduates from the class of 2013 than they did from the class of 2012.

That's way down from an earlier NACE projection of a 13 percent hiring rate for 2013 grads. (Read More: Surging Student-Loan Debt Is Crushing the System)

This comes even as the college graduate jobless picture seems to be getting better. The rate of unemployment in 2012 for college grads—defined as 20-24 years old—was 6.3 percent, down from the 8.3 percent for 2011 graduates, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The rate in 2010 was 9.4 percent.

I wonder if that lower percentage accounts for the 'useless' bachelors degrees like art history, women's studies, psychology, etc.

I've been out of college for a few years now. The only college graduates who can easily find work are nurses and accountants who passed all of the accreditations.

There's A LOT of opportunities in Philadelphia for accountants. The Navy employees a lot of them in addition to many big companies in Philly (See Price Waterhouse Coopers).

I agree, all of the above plus engineering and computer science. The job market for computer scientists is doing well in this area.

Engineering is debatable. It's hard to get an engineering job with the government right now, and all of the companies who do work for the government (Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Grumman, etc.) are laying people off or furloughing them. My girlfriend is an engineer. I hear about it all the time.

Edit: I do see A LOT of job postings looking for people for information security for you computer geeks out there.
