Annual Report Methodology

Annual Report

The Annual Report, produced by the Career Services center, is compiled to summarize the services and activities of the Office in addition to providing the campus community with an overview of general salary and job market trends. Caution should be exercised when generalizing this data due to the relatively small number of respondents in some degree areas. Portions of the report have been modified this year to better coincide with Department of Labor reporting methods.

Survey Method:
Data is collected three times per year at or near the end of each semester. A comprehensive listing of graduates (including names, addresses, and phone numbers) is provided by the Registrar, and the Alumni Office. The Office of Career Services then contacts each graduating student utilizing the following methods:

· A web survey is available on our website at for students/graduates to complete as necessary.

· Approximately six months following graduation, phone calls are made to the graduates who have not yet responded to the Graduate Survey. Four attempts are made to contact each graduate by phone in an effort to reach a higher percentage of graduates, as well as to update graduates' employment statistics.

· Finally, a survey is mailed to any graduate who has not yet responded to our survey. The mailing includes a letter of introduction and explanation, the Graduate Survey, and a return self-addressed envelope to facilitate a better return rate.

Salaries reported by graduates which were part-time salaries or which were significantly outside the normal high/low salary range were excluded from this report to avoid skewing or distorting of overall salary averages.

Any questions regarding the published results or the survey procedures can be directed to the Career Services Center, Ward Edwards 1200, or by calling (660) 543-4985.
