HOUSTON – (April 24, 2014) – Nicole Van Den Heuvel, director of Rice University’s Center for Career Development, is available for news media interviews to discuss the job market outlook for 2014 college graduates.

The U.S. Department of Education estimates that more than 1.8 million bachelor’s degrees will be conferred nationally this spring. With so many college students finishing their postsecondary education, Van Den Heuvel can also talk about the next steps college graduates can take.

In 2011 (the most recently available data), Texas conferred 174,000 bachelor’s degrees.

Rice talent is in continued demand for not only the Houston market, but in many other geographical areas,” Van Den Heuvel said. “When it comes to recruiting graduates who can think analytically, problem solve creatively, work in teams and write and communicate effectively, our Rice students are top of the line.”

Rice University will hold its 101st graduation ceremony May 17. Dr. Helene Gayle, president and CEO of the global poverty-fighting organization CARE USA, will be the commencement speaker.

To schedule an interview with Van Den Heuvel, contact David Ruth, director of national media relations at Rice, at 713-348-6327 or david@rice.edu.
