Hastings College is the top school in Nebraska for it’s graduates finding jobs – and third nationally – according to data crunched by Zippia.
“Not all schools are equal in job placement success — or size — and some colleges are vastly more supportive of their students’ post-graduation concerns than others,” said David Luther, author of the report. “For this reason, many students are willing to give up dominant athletics and research departments in exchange for smaller class sizes and greater access to resources that comes with a small college.”
Zippia.com noted that many incoming first-year students believe it is “very important” that their college’s alumni get good jobs after graduation. “And our research shows that this pays out for employment — six of the 10 best colleges for jobs are small schools, which for the purposes of this study are 1,000 to 2,000 students,” it said.
For the research, the career site used information found on the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), searching for colleges in each state. They looked specifically at schools with the highest listed job placement ratings, and specifically at employment levels 10 years after students have graduated.
