Job Market Success for UE Class of 2015

Posted: Wednesday, February 17, 2016

The University of Evansville’s 2015 graduating class is doing well after graduation, with 94 percent currently employed or enrolled in graduate school. The median salary of 2015 of those employed full-time was $47,500.

The survey was a collaborative effort between UE’s Center for Career Development, Office of Alumni and Parent Relations, Office of Institutional Effectiveness, and academic departments. It produced career information on 97 percent of the class of 2015.

“The results of this survey are indicative of the active role that the University plays in the success of our students’ success and in their career development,” said UE President Thomas A. Kazee. “The University offers its students a unique career planning process that begins even before they enroll here, and it continues after they graduate.”

Other results reported in the survey:

•           Fifty-nine percent of employed graduates were working in Indiana.

•           Fifty-seven percent of graduates in graduate school were studying in Indiana. 

•           An additional 20 percent of graduates not currently in graduate school indicated the intention to pursue graduate school within the next three years.

UE’s Center for Career Development provides comprehensive services to students throughout their collegiate journey. Through the Career Advantage Program, prospective students have the opportunity to evaluate and test career options by taking a career assessment, meeting with a career advising professional and developing a career action plan. Prospective students can begin this Career Advantage Program during their first visit to UE.

Current UE students can pursue the Advanced Career Education (ACE) Certificate to hone their professional skills. 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.
