Interested in where you could go after you graduate from Carolina? Whether they stay in North Carolina or end up in other parts of the U.S. or world, our alumni are doing amazing things. In fact, according to the First Destination Survey of May 2015 graduates, 90% were either employed or in graduate school within six months. Among those graduates who entered the work force, many are now working for Fortune 500 companies such as Target, Google, General Electric or Cisco Systems or nonprofit organizations such as Americorps, Teach for America, and the Peace Corps. Other graduates enrolled in graduate or professional programs such as medicine, law, chemistry, business, and political science at institutions such as Oxford, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and UNC.
Don’t want to wait until you graduate before you start networking and learning about the opportunities available to you? Seventy-three percent of all respondents to the 2015 survey sponsored by University Career Services reported that they completed at least one internship. Of those respondents who accepted job offers, 79.5% had at least one internship and 32% were offered full-time jobs with the same employer where they had previously interned!
