If you’re graduating this spring, here’s a little good news: The Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that job openings were still going up in February. The National Association of Colleges and Employers also announced that its business survey shows an uptick in college grads being hired as well as an increase in college internships.

But don’t snooze on this — there are lots of people currently enrolled in college and as they start to emerge we could still see a very tight job market, even if more employers are hiring.
