  • More than 90% of our graduates get jobs or admission to graduate schools, much better than the average
  • 100% of finance majors who graduated in 2012 secured finance jobs with higher than average salaries
  • 95% of education majors immediately found jobs in schools

  • Referrals play such important parts in today’s job or internship search. The right connection can give someone an opportunity of a lifetime to learn and develop their career. With this in mind, the Career Advancement Center created the resume referral program. The program allows participating students to be connected to opportunities that may not be otherwise posted or advertised via ForesterLink.
