NDSU career advising director: new report shows 93 percent student success rate

(Fargo, ND) -- The Director of the Career Advising Center at NDSU says a new report shows positive trends for recent graduates. 

"The Career Outcomes Report, we collect where students end up up to six months post graduation from NDSU. So it's mainly done through a survey," said Becky Bahe.

Bahe says the survey shows that for responding students who graduated in 2021, or in May 2022, 72 percent have entered employment while 21 percent are continuing their educations. 

Bahe says that makes up for an overall "success rate" of 93 percent. 

The median reported salary is $54 thousand, while the median bonus is $5,000.

"I think it's a good indicator that NDUS is doing their best and their part to help the workforce demand, that we're getting people into those places of employment," said Bahe.  

Top employers who have hired students include Sanford Health, NDSU, Essentia Health, Doosan Bobcat, Fargo Public Schools, and Scheels.
