Report on Job Placement and External Transfer of 1986 Graduates.
Allen, Marcia T.
From November 1986 through February 1987, the Community College of Rhode Island's (CCRI's) Job Placement Office conducted a survey of the college's 1986 graduates to gather information on the employment status and approximate salary range of graduates who joined the work force and a list of colleges currently attended full-time by graduates who were furthering their education. Questionnaire responses were obtained from 1,203 of the 1,418 graduates surveyed. Study findings included the following: (1) 53% of the graduates were employed full-time, 11% were employed full-time while pursuing education part-time, 10% were employed part-time, 2% were unavailable for work, 2% were unemployed, 12% were pursuing education full-time, and 10% were full-time students working part-time; (2) the programs with the largest number of graduates were business administration (N=365), associate degree nursing (N=211), liberal arts (N=183), and human services (N=100); (3) of 23 programs covered, the highest salaries were commanded by Instrumentation Technology graduates and the lowest by Dental Assistant graduates; and (4) a comparison of 1985 and 1986 statistics shows increases in the number of graduates employed part-time, of graduates employed part-time while attending school full-time, and of graduates working in "career" rather than "temporary" positions. The survey instrument is appended. (UCM)
