The higher education industry may be in a stir about students’ loans, lack of jobs and the lack of graduates finding full-time work in their degree field, but Globe University-Green Bay has some bragging rights. The campus recently received the New Campus Placement Award for placing 96 percent of its graduates in jobs in their degree fields.
While half of recent college grads lack a full-time job according to a Rutgers University study referenced in a Huffington post article, Globe University has greatly surpassed the average college.
Placement Numbers that Speak Volumes
For Globe University-Green Bay’s 2011-2012 campus accountability reporting year, 96 percent of graduates were placed in-field after graduation. Twenty-four out of 25 grads were placed in jobs, most resulting from internships and externships.
How Globe Places Grads
Jackie Doperaski, director of career services, has much to be proud of, stating, “Placement is not just the job of career services; it takes every member of the campus team to accomplish this.”
All staff members support the initiative to assist our students with their career goals:
- Admissions understands the students and places them in the right programs.
- Faculty members educate and provide skills students need to thrive in their professions.
