Employers plan to hire 17 percent more graduates from the Class of 2007 than they did from the Class of 2006, making this year's job market the strongest since 2001-2002, according to a study conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers.

This year's growth is part of a four-year gradual increase in jobs for recent college graduates, said Andrea Koncz, employment information manager of NACE. According to Koncz, job offers to the class of 2006 showed an increase of 14.5 percent from the previous year.
