Eighty per cent of Canadian executives say their organizations are at least as active if not more active in hiring graduates than they were five years ago, according to a recent survey.

“As the hiring environment has become increasingly competitive, demand for recent graduates also has risen,” said Max Messmer, chairman of Accountemps.

The survey by staffing specialist firm Accountemps includes responses from 100 senior executives from human resources, finance and marketing departments.
