Why Take the Career Outcomes Survey?

TL;DR: To help current and prospective students make informed decisions about their future.

Each year CO-OPS + CAREERS asks recent Wentworth grads, at commencement and again 6 months later, to share their plans for life after Wentworth through the Career Outcomes survey. This annual initiative captures a snapshot of hiring trends, challenges, and opportunities that each graduating class faces.  Once collected, we compile the responses in an anonymous report that shares the story of the most recent Wentworth graduating class with the goal of providing current and future students with the information they need to make decisions about their major and career goals. Check out the Class of 2019 report here.

Responding to the Career Outcomes Survey can be intimidating, especially in light of recent times. After all, it’s a survey asking whether or not you are currently employed or heading to grad school, which for many is a challenging question in this job market. Let us be clear in the purpose of this survey: It is not to measure your individual career success. Your response helps Wentworth and the Center for Cooperative Education and Career Development understand how to best support you and future graduates. And, when you do find a job you can retake the survey (open for 6 months post graduation) to update your response and we’ll use your most recent entry when compiling the data.

All Class of 2020 Graduates are encouraged to take the Career Outcomes Survey, regardless of your current career status. The information you are able to provide can have a significant impact on the choices your Wentworth peers make and can also influence how the University supports your future. All responses will remain confidential.
