Where is the Class of 2017 and What are they Doing? #USTCareerScoop

The First Destinations of 2017 Undergraduates report is here!

Wondering what job titles are open to students/alumni in your major, what companies you could work for, or how much money you might earn after graduating? The Career Development Center surveys alumni annually to compile a report of post-graduation activities. The 2017 Undergraduate First Destination Survey has been completed and provides answers to your questions. View the report online.

A few quick facts:

  • The total percentage securing their employment prior to graduation or within a month of graduation has increased each year to a current 73.75%.
  • The median salary range for full-time employment was $45,001-$50,000.
  • Overall, 64.85% of graduates reported having an internship while 94.4% reported either employment, graduate school enrollment, and volunteer or military service.

Seniors, check your email…
…from May 7th for a message regarding the First Destinations of 2018 Survey. It takes just minutes to complete and you will be entered into the early bird drawing to win one of several $50 Amazon gift cards.

Practice Interviewing From Home #USTCareerScoop

Interview Stream
Looking for a convenient way to practice interviewing?  Try Interview Stream. This online tool allows you to practice interviewing at your convenience, from the comfort of your own home, via webcam video!  You will see real interview questions, record yourself and can self-review, or review with a career counselor.

If online practice isn’t your thing, make an appointment to meet with a career counselor for a mock interview. We know that interviewing is a skill that can be learned and enhanced through practice. Our career counselors are here to help  improve your skills and not judge. We are open through the summer months and would be happy to see current students and alumni for a mock interview. Call 651-962-6761 to schedule an appointment.

To end the semester we thought we’d share some inspiration and humor to lighten the stress load of the last week of class.

Get inspired….

Have a laugh….
