College grads are optimistic

With the spring college graduation season upon us, seniors are more optimistic about finding a job this year than they were last year.

But if they can't land a position in their field, 35 per cent said they'd take a temporary position or do odd jobs to earn money. That was up from 32 per cent who answered the same question in a similar poll last year.

The results are from Yahoo! HotJobs' 2004 College Survey, which involved 680 college seniors.

More than half of soon-to-be-graduates, 53 per cent, have not started looking for full-time employment and more than one-third believe it will take less than three months to find their first jobs.
