The prediction is based on reports from more than 600 employers who participated in a council survey. As in past years, the council in Bethlehem, Pa., will touch base with the job recruiters in the spring to see how the December prediction holds up. A dip in the economy could turn the bright outlook to poor. Generally, the employers expect to hire 12 per cent more new college graduates than they did last year. Continuing a trend set last year, private sector employers are the most optimistic, expecting to have 16 per cent more jobs. By contrast, federal government agencies foresee an increase of less than 1 per cent. Local and state agencies, based on a limited response, expect a 9 per cent decrease. The council reported that federal agencies anticipate little or no change in their plans for 1976-77 when the Carter administration takes office. The report also said: I Thur., Fri., Sat.
