Finding Success

Survey says our graduates are doing well

January 20, 2014

Graduates of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University are finding success after college. In a survey conducted by the Office of Career Services at CSB and SJU, 99 percent of the graduates from the CSB and SJU classes of 2012 report being employed full-time (72 percent), continuing their education (17 percent), engaged in full-time volunteer service (8-percent), in the military (1 percent) or working part-time (1 percent).

Less than one-percent of those responding to the survey said they remained unemployed and seeking work one year after graduation. Nationally, the unemployment rate for college graduates under age 25 in May 2013 was 8.2 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

More than half of the respondents to the survey provided salary information with their answers. For those employed full-time, the estimated average income was $38,611. Additionally, 34 percent reported incomes greater than $45,000 and 41 percent reported incomes between $30,000 and $45,000.
