Survey Results for the Class of 2013

Each year, Career Services conducts a follow-up survey to determine the post-graduate status of the previous year’s Bachelor degree candidates. In addition to providing a copy of the survey with each graduate’s diploma, attempts are made to collect data through e-mails, phone calls and social media. Faculty and employers are also asked to contribute their knowledge of alumni whereabouts.  A final report is compiled in late spring. Data for this report was collected through May 21, 2014. 

Knowledge rate is defined as the percent of graduates for which the institution has reasonable and verifiable information concerning the graduates' post-graduation career activities.

A Note About the Use of Statistical Data
Although employment survey data is often used to make career decisions, the employability of today's college graduate is also influenced by economic conditions and the personal traits and characteristics of the job seeker.

Decisions about career choices should be made by the assessment of each candidate's interests, skills and values. Caution should also be used in any interpretation or application of the included statistics. If you are using this report to make career decisions, please consult with the staff in Career Services.
