Advertising and marketing among top industries for grads

An infographic by H&R Block ranked advertising as the top growth industry for recent graduates, with sales and marketing at a healthy sixth.

Just graduated college? Congrats!

The good news is you don’t have to go to class anymore, and you have any number of graduation speeches to inspire you.

The bad news is that now you have to find a job. And if you majored in any of the 10 subjects listed at the top of this H&R Block infographic, you may have a hard time doing so.

But there’s good news, too. Advertising is ranked as the top growth industry for college graduates, and marketing is up there, too, at No. 6. So if you majored in one of those, you’ll have some opportunities.

And hey, PR isn’t among the worst majors (though English is).

Check out the infographic, detailing the landscape for recent grads (and if you’re heading into the mining, quarrying & oil/gas extraction industry, well done):
