T

he 2010-2011 academic year was very a busy one for the Office of Career Services. Participation in all of our services and programs combined reached approximately 34,000 constituents (undergraduate and graduate students, alumni, and employers). Overall participation continues to increase every year and our dedicated team continues to provide high quality, personalized service to all constituents. One of our primary goals each year is to create opportunities to engage students as early as possible and to sustain this engagement throughout their four years at Princeton. The career development process is one that involves education, selfreflection, and exploration. Our role is to help students discover and explore their individual career interests and to assist them in developing and executing a strategy for achieving their goals. One measure of our success is the percentage of students who engage with our office. Based on appointment usage and event attendance this year, we engaged with the following percentage of the undergraduate class: • • • •

Class of 2011 = 79.97 percent or 1038 of a total 1298 students Class of 2012 = 71.07 percent or 931 of a total 1310 students Class of 2013 = 60.66 percent or 811 of a total 1337 students Class of 2014 = 47.47 percent or 629 of a total 1325 students

Other significant highlights from the 2010-2011 academic year include: • We added two new Assistant Director positions, one to focus on student-alumni engagement and the other to assist students and employers in the arts, nonprofit, and government sectors. • Career counseling activity increased by 14.21 percent (with 6,011 appointments this year as compared to 5,263 in 2009-2010). • Program attendance was increased by 11.29 percent (10,271 participants as compared to 9,229 in 20092010). This is significant because there was a 40 percent increase the prior year. • The number of employers recruiting our students increased by 30.65 percent (2,020 in 2010-2011 as compared to 1,546 in 2009-2010). • The Princeternship externship program continued to expand with an over 66 percent increase in alumni hosts and more than double the number of students participating as compared to last year. • We expanded our social media efforts with “Student-2-Student” blogs written by our student interns to provide peer-to-peer advice. These were nationally recognized as one of the “Top 25 Career Services Blogs.” I invite you to look through our Annual Report for more information, including the 2010-2011 Office Activity Report, the Class of 2011 Survey Report, and the 2011 Summer Experience Report. Thank you for your interest in our office and our efforts on behalf of Princeton students. Sincerely,

Beverly Hamilton-Chandler Beverly Hamilton-Chandler, Director

Class of 2011 Survey Report

E

ach year the Office of Career Services at Princeton University surveys the graduating class to gather information about their post-graduation plans. This report summarizes the responses from the Class of 2011.* Six months after graduation...

85.4% 61.6% 22.5%

have achieved their post-graduation plans

have accepted employment

have pursued further education

* There were 1,202 graduates in the Class of 2011. Over 99 percent of the class completed the annual Career Plans Survey in May at Senior Checkout to indicate their post-graduation plans. Follow-up was conducted during subsequent months to determine achievement of their reported post-graduation plans.

PLEASE NOTE: There are two significant changes in the Senior Class Survey Report this year.

.

.

Follow-up time frame. In previous years, follow-up was conducted over a three-month time period following graduation. For the Class of 2011, the Office of Career Services extended the data collection time frame to six months after graduation. Method of employment industry classification. For the Class of 2011, the Office of Career Services began using the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), a standardized industry classification system used by federal statistical agencies such as the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as well as the Hoover’s Business Database to analyze and publish data related to U.S. businesses and the economy. NAICS is also the standard used by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and the Collegiate Employment Research Institute (CERI) for survey reporting.

These changes prevent a multi-year comparison of data across classes and industries.

Class of 2011 Survey Report

Nonprofit & Government Employment Princeton in the Nation’s Service...

21%

of the Class of 2011 employed in nonprofit* * Percentage of total Class

Over the past several years, when combining all types of employment (fulltime, part-time, self-employed, internships, military, professional sports, and participation in 1-2 year internships), a significant percentage of graduates have been employed by organizations in the nonprofit sector (percentage of total class). The Class of 2011 also obtained employment in a wide range of organizations within the nonprofit sector including educational institutions, health care and social assistance organizations, grantmaking and giving services, social advocacy groups, civic and social organizations, and some scientific research and development services/foundations. In reviewing the Class of 2011 survey findings, it is important to note that the NAICS industry classification system used to identify and categorize the industries in which our graduates obtained employment, does not include nonprofit as a separate industry category. Nonprofit and government organizations are incorporated into several different NAICS categories, including, but not limited to, educational services; administrative and support services; health care and social assistance; professional, scientific, and technical services; and public administration. Of the 741 graduates in the Class of 2011 employed in all possible types of employment combined (full-time, part-time, selfemployed, internships, military, professional sports, and participation in 1-2 year internships), 21 percent of the total class obtained employment in the nonprofit sector including government and the military. (Please note, this percentage does not include fellowships.) A sample of nonprofit and government employers with multiple hires is included below. Employers with less than two graduates employed are not included.

Sample Nonprofit Employers Acumen Fund AmeriCorps Applied Public Policy Research Institute for Study and Evaluation (APPRISE) Association to Benefit Children * Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Character Education Partnership * Chiang Mai University * City Year Columbia University Council on Foreign Relations

2011 Summer Experience Report

T

he Office of Career Services promotes the value of experiential learning to students, encouraging them to pursue experiences through which they can explore career-related interests, and enhance their skills. We provide many services, resources, and events to help students connect with opportunities. We also build and maintain ongoing relationships with employers and alumni to identify internships and other summer experiential learning programs for our students. During the summer and fall of 2011, the Office of Career Services invited students in the classes of 2012, 2013 and 2014 to complete a voluntary online survey to identify the ways in which they spent the summer of 2011. Students were asked to classify their primary summer experience as internship or summer job, volunteer, academic/independent research, summer academic study, other activities, or summer off. The survey was completed by 851 students with a response rate of 21.8% (a 3.2% increase from 2010 Summer Experience Survey). Two notable changes have been made in this report as compared to previous years:

Method of employment industry classification. In 2011, the Office of Career Services began using the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), a standardized industry classification system used by federal statistical agencies such as the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as well as the Hoover’s Business Database to analyze and publish data related to U.S. businesses and the economy. NAICS is also the standard used by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and the Collegiate Employment Research Institute (CERI) for survey reporting. Categories based on funding/compensation. For reporting purposes, the internship/summer job, academic/independent research, and volunteer categories were combined into two categories: worked (paid/funded) vs. volunteered (unpaid/unfunded). This allowed for data to be compared based on funding/ compensation.
