Delaware ranked second best state for college grads to find a job


Delaware is the second best state for college grads to find work according to a recent report

The report, released by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, shows that the First State is just behind Massachusetts when it comes to available jobs for graduates.

The report ranks the states by how many job openings there are per college-educated worker overall -- and within certain industries and career fields.

The fastest growing sector for college grads in Delaware is leisure and hospitality services. And the fastest growing occupational cluster is the health care industry. Delaware is particularly strong when it comes to open careers in the STEM fields - that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.


The report also found that Delaware performs well when it comes to advertising these jobs online -- over 7,000 jobs were posted during the compiling of the report.

The state of West Virginia ranked last overall.
