Class of 2017 Achieves 98% Job Placement

After following up with 77 percent of the Class of 2017, the Academic and Career Development Center confirmed that 98 percent of students secured full-time employment, placement in a graduate or professional school, or are participating in a volunteer service program within six months after graduation.

More than 48 percent of the students from the Class of 2017 obtained employment through Fairfield University’s senior year campus recruiting and employment resources. Financial Services (22%), followed by Healthcare/Nursing (19%) and Communications/Marketing (14%) represented the most popular fields.

Through the Academic and Career Development Center, students have a number of resources available to them including Job Shadow Day, on-campus recruiting, Stags4Hire, and internships. These opportunities give students real-world experience and build relationships and industry connections, which often result in employment offers from the companies where they interned.
