Class of ’11: Where are they now?

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.
