UW Oshkosh Today – University of Wisconsin Oshkosh students exceed the national average when it comes to securing a job after graduation, a new report shows.
The annual First Destination Outcomes survey targets recent UW Oshkosh graduates to determine their career outcomes. The report, released this month, follows the Oshkosh campuses classes of 2017-2018.
Of more than 2,000 respondents, 88.5 percent secured an outcome, up from 87 percent in 2016-17 and well above the national average of 84.4 percent. The rate includes students who are employed or in military service, volunteer service, continuing education or not seeking employment. Even more impressive is that 62.3 percent of those employed secured their positions before graduation.
