Making a Strong Start

Each year, Fairfield University’s Career Planning Center
compiles a report of the most recent graduating class to see
where they are six months post-graduation. After following
up with 83.3 percent of Fairfield’s Class of 2015, the Career
Planning Center discovered that 97.4 percent secured fulltime
employment or placement in a graduate or professional
school or are participating in a volunteer service program.
The percentage of graduates obtaining employment through
senior year campus recruiting and employment resources is
38 percent. Communication and marketing were the highest
areas of placement, consisting of 26.2 percent.

“It is evident that the education our students receive while
attending Fairfield is valued by the employing community,
graduate and professional schools that admit our students
and the service organizations that select our students to
support their mission in service,” said Susanne Quinlivan,
associate director of the Career Planning Center. “This
speaks highly of the marketability of our students as they
leave Fairfield.”
