A total of 712 students graduated from the seven institutions in the New Hampshire Post-Secondary Vocational-Technical Education System in 1975. In spite of the high unemployment rate in the State, 70 percent, or 495 of the eligible graduates were employed full-time by September 30, 1975; 3 percent were employed part-time, 12 percent were continuing their education full-time, and only 9 percent were still seeking employment. Of all graduates employed full-time, 91 percent have remained in New Hampshire, 88 percent commute to work from their home towns, and 92 percent are employed in their major or related field of study. Average entry job salaries by job categories remained stable, showing no significant change from 1974. This is consistent with the general economic outlook. It is estimated that all graduates employed full-time will have a total gross earning power in excess of $3,750,000 during their first year of employment. Data are tabulated for each of the seven institutions, according to program of study, and a list of representative companies employing 1975 graduates is provided. (Author/NHM)
