MU Grads Get Jobs
85% of MU grads got jobs last year compared to 81% nationwide. For some MU students, summer is all fun and games. For others, it's time to get serious. That's the case for 2007 graduate Jackie Guyer. Guyer is job-hunting.
"It's going slowly, but I'm trying to look at all of options and make sure to make a decision that I like," Guyer said.
The National Association of Colleges and Employers, or NACE, cites an increase in grads finding jobs. The reason? They're seeking help. According to the 2007 survey by NACE, students who graduated and secured jobs thereafter were more likely to visit their student success centers. This may be the case for Mizzou.
"Definitely, it's just good to have another pair of eyes to look over your resume and they have a lot of resources to search for jobs, even if it's just a temporary, non-profit kind of work your looking for," Guyer explains.
Amanda Nell, at the MU Success Center, said accessibility to resources is key to students' success in the work force.
"Students really have constant access, if they wanted, and I think that's having a positive impact," Nell said.
Employees at the MU Success Center encourage future, current and graduate students to come to them for help. Out of all MU grads surveryed from last year, 90% found jobs within their majors.
