Industry

CCU alumni belong to a wide range of sectors. A few fields in which grads tend to find work include the environmental consulting industry, the resort industry, and the marketing, advertising, and media management industry. A large chunk of former CCU students are employed in the education industry; in fact, this is the most popular job sector for this population. Unfortunately, former CCU students — a population with excellent SAT results — report salaries on the lower end of the pay scale. Graduates of CCU earn around $47K on average.

Jobs

CCU grads who become Human Resources Generalists garner financial rewards beyond any other job type for this group — these alumni rake in an average $62K annually. However, Restaurant Managers and Graphic Designers also rank as top-earners (bringing in $43K and $39K, respectively). Sliding in near the bottom are Volunteer Coordinators, who report earnings of about $26K.

Locations

The most popular destination for former CCU students is Myrtle Beach, S.C. With a median salary of $52K, Conway, S.C. represents the highest-paid city popular among CCU grads. CCU alumni in Atlanta, Ga. can often be found sliding in at the lower end of the pay scale, where median paychecks are the smallest at approximately $26K. CCU alumni express interest in nearby Columbia, S.C. and Georgetown, S.C. as well.

Degree Major

CCU students with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (CS) can expect to make the most money ($88K on average per year) compared to their fellow graduates. Ranking last in the compensation department are those holding a Master of Business Administration (MBA) — their annual income amounts to $32K on average.

Skills

For former Chanticleers, proficiency in Microsoft Active Directory warrants a paycheck that is 78 percent more than other alumni salaries. Proficiency in Microsoft Excel is common among CCU alumni, and when it comes to using it on the job, close to a tenth of former students report doing so. Customer Service, Data Analysis, and Customer Relations are among other dominant skills.

Benefits and Perks

Only two-fifths of alumni earn paid vacation and just one in five survey participants get paid sick time. A fair number of survey participants set up a 401(k) to save for retirement. It is no small feat that a strong majority of grads are given health coverage, and a majority of grads accept dental insurance. Additional perks enjoyed by Coastal Carolina University grads include a casual working environment, a company-subsidized cell phone, life insurance, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Among alumni of similar schools, Georgia Southwestern State University grads (who make an average of $46K) earn salaries most similar to CCU alumni. Christopher Newport University, California State University-Monterey Bay, and Evergreen State College are also similar to CCU.
