The Departments of Labor and Higher Education, working in close collaboration with the constituent units of public higher education, present this comprehensive report on the employment of graduates of public colleges and universities. This report summarizes the employment and compensation experience of students who graduated from the State's 18 public colleges in 2007. Employment results continue a positive trend with at least 7 out of 10 public college graduates working in Connecticut nine months after graduation (70% or 12,471 out of 17,928). This is two percentage points higher than the rate for prior year graduates. Other highlights include: (1) Employed graduates earned an average of over $40,000 on an annualized basis, with the highest earnings found among those working in Utilities ($82,064 per year); (2) Almost 45 percent were working in Education and Health Services; and (3) The majority of employed graduates were women (63%).
