Industry

Armstrong alumni find work in an assortment of industries including clinical care, the health care services industry, and the home health care industry. Among Armstrong grads, the health care industry is a commonly chosen career field. Former Armstrong students are not known for their interest in the education industry; less than five percent of them advance into this area for work. Following graduation, Armstrong students earn an average of $53K.

Gender

Male graduates of Armstrong out-earn their female counterparts significantly, earning an average of about $67K versus approximately $48K for women.

Jobs

The biggest paychecks among Armstrong alumni are earned by Adult Nurse Practitioners — these former students make $99K per year. The next biggest paychecks go to Software Developers ($73K) and Applications Programmers (around $68K). Relative to other positions, compensation dwindles for Marketing Assistants; alumni in this role face average salaries of $33K.

Locations

Armstrong alumni typically remain in Savannah, the city they've grown to love, after graduation, and more than two-fifths of grads find permanent positions in the workforce here. Another city that attracts a wealth of Armstrong grads is Atlanta; given its high compensation (approximately $84K is the average salary), the city's popularity should come as no surprise. Armstrong alumni in Statesboro can often be found sliding in at the lower end of the pay scale, where median paychecks are the smallest at $40K. Hilton Head Island is also a top pick, as is Tampa.

Degree Major

Armstrong students with a Bachelor of Science in Biology can expect to make the most money (around $168K per year) compared to their fellow graduates. A Master of Science (MS), Sports Medicine commands less pay, and these degree-holders face salaries of $26K.

Skills

Armstrong grads are usually competent in Microsoft Excel, and less than ten percent of alumni continue practicing this skill in their career. Knowing .NET can pay off big time for former Pirates, who can expect a 28 percent bigger paycheck than other grads. Other top skills include Customer Service, Microsoft Office, and Acute Care.

Benefits and Perks

Lacking in the benefits department, just one in three grads report compensation for sick days and only one in five survey participants get vacation time. A fair portion of alums participate in a 401(k) retirement savings plan. Dental insurance applies to a majority of former students, and most graduates report health coverage. Other benefits awarded to Armstrong Atlantic State University alumni include life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, a casual working environment, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools
