Fairfield Students Achieve a 96% Job Placement Rate for Five Consecutive Years

Over the last five years, over 96 percent of Fairfield graduates secured full-time employment, acceptance into graduate schools and volunteer programs within six months post-graduation. The most recent graduating class was no different.

After following up with 85 percent of the Class of 2016, the Academic and Career Development Center confirmed that 96 percent of students secured full-time employment, placement in a graduate or professional school or are participating in a volunteer service program within six months after graduation. Our Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies students achieved a 100% overall placement rate in both the undergraduate and graduate school programs.

Over 44% of the students from the Class of 2016 obtained employment through Fairfield University's senior year campus recruiting and employment resources. Financial Services (21%), followed by Healthcare/Nursing (18%) and Communication/Marketing (17%) represented the most popular fields of work.

Through the Academic and Career Development department, students have a number of resources available to them including Job Shadow Day, on-campus recruiting, Stags4Hire and internships. Through these opportunities, students obtain real-world experience and build relationships and industry connections which often result in employment offers from the company where they interned.

During the 2015-2016 academic year, 592 members of the Class of 2016 reported participating in internships during their time at Fairfield. In addition to securing full-time employment, 20.5 percent of the class gained admission into graduate school, with the greatest percentage entering programs in Education (25.5 %), Business (25.0%), Arts and Sciences (21.2%), Healthcare (11.6%), and Law (8.8%).

 

The next Career and Internship Fair will be held Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the RecPlex.
