Connecticut Department of Higher Education (NJ1)
The Connecticut Departments of Labor (DOL) and Higher Education (DHE), working in close collaboration with the University of Connecticut, Connecticut State University, Connecticut Community Colleges and Charter Oak State College, present this comprehensive report on employment outcomes for graduates of the State's public college system. This report summarizes employment and earnings experience for students who graduated from one of the state's 18 public colleges in 2004. The report also provides for the first time, a detailed picture of graduate employment by industry sector and college degree program from the State, system and institutional perspective. This project builds upon the Department of Labor's successful work on the Connecticut Employment and Training Commission's annual report of employment outcomes for the State's education and training programs, and the Department of Higher Education's efforts to assess the employment success of its graduates through its annual accountability report. Overall, 68 percent of the 14,780 graduates were found to be working in Connecticut seven to nine months after their graduation in a wide variety of industry sectors such as educational services, health care, professional and technical services, manufacturing and retail trade.
