Note: (1) Graduates reporting being both employed AND attending graduate/professional school were counted once and categorized based on their primary activity. (2) Starting from the 2012 Graduating Class, three methods were used to collect graduates’ career outcomes data: HEDS Graduating Senior Survey, One-Year-Out Alumni Survey, and LinkedIn search. starting from the 2018 Graduating Class, another method has also been used: Commencement Prep Day Survey (late April 2018 and 2019). Data were collected at two points of time: near graduation (mid-April to early May), and then about 10-11 months after graduation. Many students accepted a job offer upon graduation, and the overwhelming majority of the remaining individuals planning to work found employment within 6 months after graduation. (3) The participation rate/knowledge rate (e.g., percent of the class for whom career information was available at the time of the study) for the 2015 Graduating Class was 92%; the 2016 Graduating Class, 90%; the 2017 Graduating Class, 89%; the 2018 Graduating Class, 95%; the 2019 Graduating Class, 90%.
