These are the College Majors Getting the Biggest Signing Bonuses

According to Bloomberg, the students who are most likely to get signing bonuses -- one-time incentives companies dole out to promising new employees -- are those who majored in business, engineering, or computer science, according to a National Association of Colleges and Employers survey of 260 employers. Chemical engineers are poised to receive the most generous bonuses ($5,250), trailed by their more general engineering peers ($5,107), computer science majors ($4,364), business majors ($3,958), and accounting majors ($3,682).

Bloomberg continues:
Worth noting: The majors that employers were most likely to say they'd give signing bonuses to are the same ones who felt least supported by faculty and least inspired to learn in college
