Data compiled by OU's Office of Career Services points to positive trends for OU graduates in the job market and other post-graduation endeavors.

The latest First-Destination Survey Report, which is based on data from the 2015-2016 graduating class, shows positive trends for recent OU graduates in the job market and other post-graduation paths.  

The report, which was produced by OU’s Office of Career Services, highlights a range of career-related metrics, including overall employment rate, internships, graduate education, salary information and career outcomes. 

 

In particular, the survey revealed a 92 percent placement rate, which was the highest in eight years.

 

“We were very encouraged to see a high placement rate for our graduates,” said Senior Director of Career Services, Wayne Thibodeau. “Career Services continues to develop new collaborative programs and initiatives with each of our Schools and the College in an effort to meet the needs of our students prior to graduation.”


The report combines survey data, social media mining and departmental records for more than 2,000 graduates to provide a snapshot of undergraduate students’ progress during their initial transition out of college. Below is an infographic of the First-Destination Survey Report.
