Industry

A far departure from high-scoring SAT results, ASU alumni report earning only moderate salaries after graduating. Median pay for those who graduated from ASU amounts to $42K.

Locations

The most popular destination for former ASU students is Birmingham, Ala. Another city that attracts a wealth of ASU grads is Atlanta, Ga.; given its high compensation ($42K is the average salary), the city's popularity should come as no surprise. Relative to other popular cities, Montgomery ranks low on the pay scale (average pay is about $42K); however, Alabama State University grads enjoy the area so much that they often choose to reside here after graduation despite the drawback in salary.

Degree Major

With a median annual earnings of around $43K per year, former Hornets who have a Bachelor's Degree are the best paid among the alumni population.

Skills

Customer Service is a common skill among ASU alumni — just under one in three grads mention using it at work. Knowledge of Microsoft Excel seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are 47 percent more than their former classmates' salaries (approximately $61K). Also considered top-notch skills are Microsoft Office, Microsoft Active Directory, and Case Management.

Benefits and Perks

Most survey participants receive health insurance, and a large number of survey participants get dental coverage. A large number of alumni plan for retirement by taking advantage of a company-sponsored 401(k) program. Alumni of Alabama State University also take in tuition reimbursement, a casual working environment, defined contribution (dc) retirement plan, and life insurance.

Related Schools

Georgia College & State University grads bring in salaries of around $46K, making them the most similar to ASU alumni in terms of earnings. Other schools similar to ASU include Auburn University at Montgomery, Columbus State University, and Troy University.
