These tables and charts show the employment and compensation experience of students who graduated from our 18 public colleges during the 2015-16 school year. The report also provides a summary of employment by industry sector and college degree program for the graduates of each system of education.

  • Overall, 67 percent of the 22,027 graduates of Connecticut’s public colleges and universities were found to be working in Connecticut seven to nine months after graduation in a wide variety of industry sectors, including educational services, health care, professional and technical services, manufacturing and retail trade.
  • A majority of participants in the DOL programs entered employment and a vast majority of those retained employment for six months. On average, those who entered employment saw significant increases in weekly wages.

It is extremely important to note that all the data and analyses provided in the report reflect employment in Connecticut only, and exclude self-employment and federal employment. Some graduates not found to be working in Connecticut may have found employment in other states or may be continuing their education (i.e. attending graduate school). Data on employment in other states, the federal government, and self-employment are not available for this analysis.
