 The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is requiring graduates to get tested for COVID-19. Officials said each grad must test negative one-to-three days before the ceremony, even if they have already been vaccinated. Commencement will take place on May Seventh and Eighth at Memorial Stadium and Pinnacle Bank Arena. 

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Career counselors and recruiters say 2019 college graduates will be hitting a hot job market if they're ready to begin their careers.

Bill Watts is the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's director of advising and career services, and he says this year's graduates have the best chances to land good jobs that he's seen in 20 years, calling the market "pretty phenomenal."

The Omaha World-Herald reports that the National Association of Colleges and Employers reported last month that hiring of college graduates will go up 10.7% this year from last year.
