University Graduate Career Surveys

<p>Some universities survey their graduates to see what they ended up doing shortly after graduation -- employed (and how much they are being paid if employed), still looking for a job, going to graduate school, or "other" (some only show pay of employed graduates). The most useful surveys break down the results by major.</p>

<p>Methodology does differ somewhat, so be careful about making comparisons across universities.</p>

<p>Moderators: would this be useful as a sticky thread?</p>

<p>It would be a useful thread, but nobody seems to want to sticky it. :(</p>

<p>it is also important to realize that most, if not all, of these surveys depends on optional student response. Obviously the students that are currently satisfied with their post-college plans are more likely to respond.</p>

<p>Is that necessarily true? In some cases, the results look very bad for 2009 graduates in many majors (high percentage still "seeking employment").</p>

<p>IMO that speaks to the depth of the problems facing new grads</p>
