College Graduates Job Search Looking Good

There's good news for college graduates as they embark on the job search.

According to a new CareerBuilder survey, the hiring outlook for college graduates is the strongest in more than a decade.

In fact, 80-percent of employers say they are planning to hire more recent college grads this year.

Those employers not looking to hire college grads say it's because their organizations aren't expanding or they need more experienced workers.

Also, nearly 47-percent plan to offer grads higher pay than last year with a third of employers paying a starting salary of 50-thousand dollars or more.

Fake Facebook Accounts

Facebook has released some surprising numbers regarding the amount of content removed in recent months.

The number of fake accounts disabled from Facebook reached 583 million in the first quarter of this year.

That's about a quarter of Facebook's entire user base.

Facebook says the majority of the fake accounts were automatically removed "within minutes of registration."

Additionally, more than 800 million pieces of spam were deleted.

Facebook says nearly all of the content was scrubbed by its technology.

Next Day Delivery for Target Expanded

Target has expanded its next-day delivery service and cut the price. 

The service is called "Target Restock" and it's expanding to more than 60 markets this week, covering about 75 percent of the country.

The program lets customers choose from more than 35,000 household items from cleaning supplies to baby products and more.

There's no delivery fee for purchases made with Target's Red Card but $2.99 if you use a different payment method reduced from $4.99.  

You can order online as late as 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and have your box delivered to your doorstep the next day. 

There's no membership fee.
