Every individual that has been through your institution carries valuable information with them. Where they work. What they do for work. Where they live. Until now, that wealth of information has been held captive by a lack of accessibility.
We recently conducted a little experiment where we explored where graduates from Kansas’s major universities (and more specifically, Emporia State University, Fort Hays State University, Kansas State University, Pittsburg State University, University of Kansas, and Wichita State University) currently live and work.
While it’s true that gigs provide less work security and fewer benefits than stable, full-time, structured employment, they do seem to offer that meaningful and romantic Kerouac-like work where the desire for adventure is a major motivator. So are gigs the way of the future? Are they good jobs? Should schools focus on training for them? When we look at the data, the answers appear to be not yet.
Which employers are hiring our graduates, and for what kinds of jobs? What skills and certifications do they have? Where are our alumni located? Answer these critical questions and others with Emsi’s Alumni Insight—essential employment outcome data gathered from more than 65 million professional profiles.
