A word to the wise: The majority of employers who plan to hire college graduates tend to wrap up their recruiting plans during the fall semester. So students, it pays to panic early!

So says the Bethlehem-based National Association of Colleges and Employees. Most in demand among 2012 graduates will be business, engineering and computer science graduates.

"Specific disciplines of targeted interest include accounting, finance, business administration and mechanical, electrical and computer engineering," said Marilyn Mackes, the association's executive director in a press release.

Employers told the association that they plan to hire 9.5 percent more 2012 grads than they did in 2011, but said that the grads will generally be filling existing openings and do not represent business growth.
