Report on Career Placement and External Transfer of 1989 Graduates.
Community Coll. of Rhode Island, Warwick.
In 1990, a study was conducted of graduates of the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) to determine their educational and career pursuits after leaving CCRI. Survey responses were obtained from 975 of the 1,213 CCRI graduates from 1989, constituting an 80% response rate. Study findings for the class as a whole indicated that of the 975 respondents, 47.1% were employed full time, 13.0% were employed full time and attending school part time, 8.2% were employed part time, 2.5% were unavailable for employment, 2.3% were unemployed and looking for employment, 14.9% were attending school full time, and 12.1% were full-time students and working part time. This report of survey results is divided into separate sections for each of CCRI's 24 programs and program areas. For each program, data are provided on the numbers and percentages of students responding to the survey and in each employment and educational category. In addition, data are provided on the average annual salary of employed graduates for each program, the salary range, the names of the organizations employing the graduates, the graduates' job titles, and the educational institutions and academic majors of graduates who were continuing their education full time. A diagram of CCRI programs and concentrations; the survey instrument; tables comparing 1987, 1988, and 1989 graduates' employment status and educational institution of transfer; and bar graphs summarizing the data for selected programs are appended.
