nalpAccording to NALP, the job market for new grads is edging back upwards after two years of falling indicators, but has not yet returned to pre-recession numbers.  In a press release issued today, NALP said the new numbers reflected a “…soft bounce in the market.”

The biggest gainer was the job offer rates for summer interns, which shot up 18% to 87.4%.  A large improvement to be sure, but still below 2008’s 89.9%.  And even though the percent of summer interns being offered a job is increasing, the overall number of interns is still down, with a national average of 9 interns compared to the highwater mark of 15 set in 2007.  The good news is that this is still an improvement over the 7 interns per firm in 2009.
