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. We are currently compiling the 2023 data, you can check out the Class of 2022 report here.

Responding to the Career Outcomes Survey can be intimidating. 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. 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 2024 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 students and alumni in the future. All responses will remain confidential.

We encourage you to make an appointment with your Co-op & Career Advisor if you want to discuss your job search. Whether you are seeking a quick check-in or a more in-depth discussion, we are here to help. Make an appointment with your Co-op & Career Advisor on WITworks or by calling the front desk at 617-989-4101.
