The Class of 2012 is expected to have more job offers and more money coming its way.
The National Association of Colleges and Employers surveyed business owners and found that they plan to hire roughly 10-percent more college graduates and the paychecks will be bigger.
According to the NACE, median salaries will start at $42,569.
Pamela Romano will graduate from RIT next month.
She wants a career taking forensic photos.
"I have definitely already looked," said Pamela Romano, a fourth year student at RIT.
She doesn't have a job yet but is looking.
"I have sent a few out. Not as much as some other people but a few out," said Romano.
Romano's odds are good though.
"Campus interviews are all up in the double digits," said Manny Contomanolis, Director of RIT's Career Services.
Manny Contomanolis says there will be jobs after graduation for students.
I think any college graduate from any college is facing a much rosier picture than last year or year before," said Contomanolis.

"Part of it is economic, part of it is suppressed demand has been there for a little bit," said Contomanolis.
The National Association of Colleges and Employers reports that some employers have posted triple the number of jobs over last year.
The highest careers in demand include: engineering, accounting, and computer science.
"From an election timeline, I think there is some confidence, depending on your political views that the next election will bring some changes," said Contomanolis.
Contomanolis says changes might come not necessarily in leadership but in priorities or investments.
But will this job surge last?
The key is to have graduates not only get jobs but keep them.
"What happens after that depends on the economy, election ,what happens globally," he said.
And the hope is that this trend isn't just for college graduates but all workers.
Just last week, the number of initial unemployment claims nationwide dropped to a four-year low.
