Class of 2011 Outcomes

A survey by Millennial Branding & Experience Inc. (2012, May 14) indicates that employers seek to hire individuals who have good communication skills, a positive attitude, the ability to adapt to changes, skills for effective teamwork, and an ability to focus on goals. As our One-Year-Out Survey shows, the 2011 graduates of Elizabethtown College fared well in the competitive marketplace they faced following graduation. The unique Elizabethtown blend of liberal arts and professional programs prepares students with the skills and experiences desired in today's workforce.

A year after graduation, a majority (68%) of the class of 2011 is employed full-time and 24% are pursuing advanced study. A handful of graduates (n=6) indicated that they were actively seeking employment and even fewer (n=2) indicated that they were intentionally not employed or in school due to family care needs. Of the 92% who responded to the survey, approximately 3 out of 4 (74%) are employed while roughly 1 out of 4 (26%) are continuing their education in various fields.

Among those 2011 graduates who sought and obtained employment, 80% reported securing their position within 6 months of graduation. Among those employed, 79% found employment related to their college major.
