Shocker Career Accelerator launches First Destination Survey Nov. 14

The Shocker Career Accelerator is launching the First Destination Survey (FDS) to all undergrad and graduate students who have filled out an application for a degree for fall 2021. The FDS is completed by graduating students online and, based on national standards, captures how new college graduates fare in their careers within six months of graduation. The information collected from the FDS provides precise, concise and consistent data on the outcomes associated with a college education on a national scale. Outcomes include: (1) types of employment—full or part-time, contract, freelance, (2) additional education, e.g., accepted to graduate or professional school, (3) still seeking either employment, further education or military and (4) starting salary for those employed full time (not a required field).

Encourage your graduating students to complete the survey starting Nov. 14.
