McComsey Career Development Center
Outcomes Report : 2013

During the past twelve months, the Career Development Center surveyed the graduating class of 2013 using a series of mail, web and phone surveys. We also collected data from employers, parents, faculty and other sources.  The Career Development Center uses the Registrar’s information for this process, so this report includes graduates of August 2012, December 2012, and May 2013.  A response rate of 83 percent was realized from the survey. This report was prepared in July 2014.

In every possible instance, comparative data for the last five years is given.  Some duplication of numbers will exist, primarily within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.  Students who graduated with dual majors have been counted in both majors for the individual major reports, but have been counted only once for the purposes of overall College and University statistics.  Also, there are few cases in which respondents indicated both enrollment in graduate school and employment as their primary status.  In those cases, percentages may add up to more than 100, and they are indicated on each page with an asterisk.

In reporting mean salaries, we do not include intern stipends, volunteer stipends (e.g., AmeriCorps), salaries for part-time positions, or full-time salaries for jobs that are clearly not in the field in which the degree was granted.  Only base salaries are averaged; we do not include bonuses, projected commissions, housing benefits, tuition remission, relocation bonuses, etc.

Every year there are cases in which respondents indicated both enrollment in graduate school and employment as their primary status.  Because of this, numbers and percentages will add up to more than 100.
