Postgrad & Career
Class of 2005 Post-Graduation Survey
Each year, the office of Career Services conducts a survey to determine the post-graduation plans of the graduating class. Graduating seniors were given an opportunity to complete the survey on-line prior to graduation. Additional information was collected throughout the year.
On June 21, 2006, the Career Services staff held a phone-a-thon in an effort to reach approximately 199 alumni who had not completed the survey.
Of the 311 graduates in the class of 2005, 278 surveys were complete enough to use for the study. This number represents an 89.4% response rate.
* "Both" refers to those who are attending a graduate/professional program on a full-time basis while working in a full-time position.
** "Temporary employment" refers to non-career positions. It should be noted that some students choose temporary employment options prior to making a commitment to a full-time position or graduate program.
*** "Other" refers to students who were in the job search process but had not made a commitment at the time of the survey. It also includes those who are traveling, pursuing a second BS/BA, not working due to illness, or taking classes but not enrolled full-time in a graduate program.
