Industry

Conn alumni can most commonly be found in the consulting industry, the public relations, marketing, and special events industry, and the education industry, though they are employed throughout a wide range of sectors. The majority of alumni accept jobs in the marketing, advertising, and media management industry. Former Conn graduates tend to bring in $60K.

Gender

There's a noticeable difference between the genders; where the average man hauls in $72K after graduating from Conn, the average woman earns only $48K.

Jobs

Among Conn alumni, those working as Credit Analysts report the highest median pay of about $60K, followed by Research Associates ($53K), and Executive Assistants (approximately $52K). Salaries are anything but generous for Case Managers, where earnings rank lowest on the pay scale at around $35K.

Locations

Many Conn grads flock to New York. Conn alumni seeking the highest salaries end up in Los Angeles, which offers median salaries of $75K. Conn alumni in Jacksonville can often be found sliding in at the lower end of the pay scale, where median paychecks are the smallest at around $40K. Boston is also a common pick among Conn grads, along with Washington, DC.

Degree Major

With annual earnings of $110K per year, Connecticut College grads who have a Master of Business Administration (MBA) are the best paid among the alumni population. A B.A. in Environmental Studies commands less pay, and these degree-holders face salaries of $32K.

Skills

Connecticut College grads who have experience with Microsoft Office can expect to make 50 percent more than other alumni ($90K on average). Proficiency in Project Management is common among Conn alumni, and when it comes to using it on the job, about one in five former students report doing so. Competency in Data Analysis, Microsoft Excel, and Media / Public Relations also warrants excellent retribution.

Benefits and Perks

A lucky minority (about two-fifths of alumni) are fortunate enough to be compensated for vacation while just one-fifth of alumni get sick time. To plan for old age, a strong majority of alums maintain savings accounts through a company's 401(k) plan. For this school, the greater part of graduates are the recipients of health benefits, and a fair portion of grads pick up dental plans, too. Other benefits that Connecticut College alumni receive are a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools
