Student Survey Data
Our recent graduate and internship surveys attest to the success of our students. See and read about how they have made a difference in their workplaces.
How does Northwestern determine the employment rate of its graduates?
Following the standard practice of most colleges and universities, Northwestern obtains information about the employment status of students at exit and follows up with graduates between 6 and 9 months after graduation. Data from the follow up survey is reported in April of each year for the previous complete academic year (December and May graduates).
How reliable is the information?
Graduates give a self-report on their employment status. Northwestern works diligently to get a response rate for the follow up survey that meets or exceed standards for statistical reliability.
What does Northwestern do to help graduates find fulfilling work?
Career Development provides a range of free services for students and alumni, including career coaching and professional development events, both on and off campus. Career coaches provide training in job search strategies, interviewing, resume writing, and other professional development topics. Northwestern also utilizes Handshake, an online job-posting platform where students and alumni can search and apply for jobs.
