A new report by Career Services at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls found that despite the economic impacts of COVID-19 the school’s graduates were in high demand.
The First Destination Report revealed that 94% of graduates from August 2020 through May 2021 advanced their careers within six months of earning their diplomas by either finding employment or continuing to graduate school.
That is up 6% from the previous year of 88%. The latest report ties the 2016 record of 94%.
The 94% includes 15% of students who are continuing their education.
