Schools Ranked by Job Offer Rate

Finding gainful employment upon completing a degree program can be difficult, which is why we consider each school’s job placement rate as a measure of its merits. Colleges with a higher job placement rate have more graduates finding jobs, which can indicate that the school has good connections with employers and recruiters, and/or offers other valuable career services like interview tutorials, resume building workshops, and career counselors. We gathered this data from the Peterson’s database.

Not every school had the job placement rate data available on Peterson’s. We did not, however, want to penalize those colleges without data. To that end, we simply excluded those schools from the rankings in this category.
