The Value of Career Services

According to NACE's 2010 Student Survey...

The likelihood of a student getting a job offer increased with the frequency of career center use:
  • Students who used the career center four or more times a semester were more likely to have job offers than those who used it once a semester

Use of career services resulted in higher median salaries, and median salaries climbed with increased use.
  • There was a difference in median salary of more than $5,700 between students from the Class of 2010 who never went to career services ($35,978) and those who went four or more times per semester ($41,714).
  • Students who went to career services once per semester had a median starting salary of $37,020, while the median salary for those who went two or three times per semester was $37,898.
