Now what? That’s the giant question looming over the head of every freshly minted graduate. To find out more about the fortunes of young alumni, Reed’s career services conducted a survey of the class of ’11. We heard back from 241 out of 292 seniors, a response rate of 83%. Among those who responded, 46% were working, 22% were looking for work, 12% had been accepted to grad school, and 7% were applying to grad school. Among the more interesting jobs we heard about: working at a law firm in Croatia; management consulting in Hanoi; teaching English in Turkey; teaching capoeira; developing software at Apple; designing games at Microsoft; doing residential counseling at a boys’ home; and caring for a 96-year-old grandmother.
In honor of Reed’s 100th birthday, make your gift this year and pledge your continued support in the future.
