EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -
A recently completed survey of the University of Evansville's 2012 graduating class found that 92 percent are employed or in graduate school.
The survey, a collaborative effort between UE's Center for Career Development, Office of Alumni and Parent Relations, academic departments, and the National Student Clearinghouse, produced career information on 87 percent of the 583 members of the Class of 2012 (including December 2011, May 2012, and July 2012 graduates).
Highlights of the survey include:
The median salary of graduates employed full-time was $42,500.
Sixty-two percent of employed graduates were working in Indiana. When entering UE in fall 2006, 57 percent of this class was from Indiana.
Thirty-two percent of graduates not currently in graduate school indicated plans to pursue graduate school within the next three years.
The numbers stand in contrast to those on a national level. In 2012, the Associated Press reported than half of recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed, and The New York Times reported in 2011 than the median annual income of recent graduates was $26,756 for jobs that required a college degree.
"At a time when there is much talk about the challenging job market for recent college graduates, as well as students' preparedness to enter the work force, our survey of the Class of 2012 paints a remarkably positive picture," said UE President Thomas A. Kazee. "This is our first effort to launch an extensive, collaborative survey among several campus offices and national clearinghouses to gather data on our 2012 graduates, and we're thrilled to find such encouraging results."
"The outcomes of this survey are a testament to the academic excellence and professionalism of students who graduate from the University of Evansville," Kazee added, "as well as the efforts of faculty and employees to prepare students for future success."
As part of the Big Freeze affordability and career development initiative launched in August 2012, UE's Center for Career Development added new staff and opportunities to help students succeed after graduation. Current students now can pursue the Advanced Career Education (ACE) Certificate to hone their professional skills, and graduating seniors and new alumni can sign up for the UE Connect alumni mentoring program.
All Center for Career Development services, ranging from résumé and cover letter assistance to mock interviews to the UE JobLink database, are free to students and alumni.
The full survey on the Class of 2012, which includes information on methodology and lists of employers and graduate schools, is available online at www.evansville.edu/careerdevelopment.
For more information or to schedule interviews with Kazee or Center for Career Development director Gene Wells, please contact Kristen Lund, UE director of news services, at 812-488-2241.
