Trident Technical College 1999 Graduate Follow-Up Report.
Trident Technical Coll., Charleston, SC.
Presents the results of South Carolina's Trident Technical College's (TTC's) 1999 graduate follow-up survey report. Graduates were surveyed and results were obtained for the following items: graduate goals, employment, placement rates, graduates in related fields, when job obtained, job finding methods, job locations, job satisfaction, job preparation, salaries, continuing education, processes and services, life skills accomplishments, and demographics by age group, gender, ethnic origin, and attendance characteristics. The 924 respondents reported higher satisfaction with processes and services than in past years. Rates increased in all 1999 categories except two. Full-time attendance by graduates has declined steadily since 1982. The 1999 full-time attendance of 56% by graduates is the lowest of any year. The two most successful methods of finding out about jobs are information from friends and relatives and direct application to the employer. However, a number of graduates said they used the Internet to find their job. The appendix includes the State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education graduate placement rate results for all programs, the allied health sciences, arts and sciences, business technology, community, family and child services, hospitality, tourism and culinary arts, industrial and engineering technology, nursing, and public service according to certificates, associate degrees, and diplomas awarded.
