Editor's Note
Gail Perry, CPA, Managing Editor It might feel like we are doomed to be stuck in a hiring slump for the foreseeable future, but that future just got a bit brighter. A new survey takes a look at the hiring outlook for recent and soon-to-be graduates, and it paints a picture brighter than anything we have seen for a couple of years. So shine your interview shoes and polish your resume (or tell your recent graduate son or daughter it's time to start thinking about a move off of the living room couch), and get ready to put a spark in your job hunt.

Best wishes,
Gail Perry, CPA
Managing Editor
