Monday, April 09, 2018
New graduates of University of Wisconsin-Stout enjoyed even greater success in the job market than last year, according to a new employment report announced on Feb. 8, by Chancellor Bob Meyer.
The 2016-17 Annual Employment Report prepared by the Career Services office showed 98.2 percent of the 1,593 graduates were employed or were furthering their education within six months of leaving campus. That compared to the 2015-16 rate of 97.4 percent and is the fourth year in a row the rate has increased.
“Employers know that when they hire a UW-Stout graduate, they are getting an employee who is ready to make an immediate contribution to the success of their business, industry or organization,” Meyer said. “Our employer partners are very aware that our students have had an education that stresses applied learning and gaining valuable experiences in the workplace.”
