And it also lists the majors that make someone the least employable.

He said that may be due to businesses feeling there's a lack of IT-qualified candidates and no need to even try to hire them. Finance was also low, Funk said, because most of the businesses that gave their preferences are not on Wall Street.

Funk added that he sees no shortage of overall employment opportunities. He said Express has around 20,000 job openings a week to fill.
